Dear list

I define a local macro lvstk below which contains variables I would like to process further. For example

local lvstk "cattle largeanims calves smallrums smallanims"

foreach v of local lvstk {
	egen `v'nbeg = sum(liv_begnum) if `v', by(houscode qtr)
	egen `v'nend = sum(liv_endnum) if `v', by(houscode qtr)
}

how do I automatically put the new variables being generated into a new macro

say

local lvstknos "cattlenbeg cattlenend ....and-all-the-other-stuff-coming-out-of-the-foreach-loop"

Ronnie
