Although syntax varname is fine as a variant on syntax varlist -syntax- still populates the -varlist- macro with whatever you supplied as varname. No local macro -varname- is defined by -syntax-. Thus I guess that qui dfuller `varname', should be qui dfuller `varlist', A separate bug in your program is that you allow -if- and -in- but do nothing to let them take effect. Various commands need to be made ... if `touse' Another bug is local i Lags which should be local i = `lags' Another class of bugs is confusion between tstat and `tstat', etc. And there are some typos. I note tacit assumptions about what your variables are called (DL*).
