> Dear Prof. Maarten Buis,

I am not not a prof. If you insist on using titles my title is drs. (which 
is not the plural of dr., or a misspelling of ds., but doctorandus (he who 
may become doctor)

No, but I haven't used panel data much, so it is very well possible that it 
exists without me knowing about it.

If you want to loop in Stata you should not store those values in vectors, 
but in locals and use -foreach- to loop.
