How about this?

sysuse auto, clear
gen y=rep
tab y, gen(yf)
ds yf*
di "`r(varlist)'"

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' "
