I deal with the long-directories in the following way: typing at the beginning
the directory where I am going to work...

cd "c:\My Personal Files\My Really Personal Data\My Secret Place"

then you can fix your program with

use file`i', clear
save file`i', replace

Thanks, but it doesn't work. The problem persists, so
weird.

Subject: st: saving enumerated file names at the end
of a loop

Hello all,

I'm running a program through bunch of files(
file1.dta, file2.dta, etc) I am opening them and
would
like to save them as replace. It opens fine, but
saving doesn't work.

My code:

forv i=1(1)48 {
use "C:\WINNT\Desktop\file`i'.dta"

* body of the program *

save "C:\WINNT\Desktop\file`i'.dta", replace
clear
}

When it saves, it only saves file.data, not
file1.dta,
etc. Why?
Thank you very much in advance,

Tj
