One ` character too many. 

tab y, gen(yf) 
local ny = r(r) 
local vars yf1-yf`ny' 

Richard Boylan

I have a simple programming question; I am sure it is answered
someplace but I couldn't figure out the right keywords to search for
it (I tried for a while!)

Here is what I would like to do, but STATA does not let me do that.


*create dummy variable for variable yf
tab y, gen(yf)

*  figure out how many dummy variables I have created
local ny = r(r)

* Here is the step that does not work
* I would like to create a list including all the dummy variables I
created

local vars "yf1-yf``ny' "
