Works for me in Stata 10... maybe restart Stata and or your computer. Update as necessary.

. sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

. display mpg[1]
22

. forval i = 1/20 {
2. display mpg[`i']
3. }
22

Was there a change in indexing between Stata 9 & 10?

In Stata 9, this generates a list of ids:

forval i = 1/65 {
	di id[`i']
}

In Stata 10, the same loop on the same data generates no output.

. set trace on

. run "C:\DOCUME~1\cjs\LOCALS~1\Temp\STD05000000.tmp"
- forval i = 1/65 {
- di id[`i']
= di id[1]
- }
- di id[`i']
= di id[2]
- }
- di id[`i']
= di id[3]
- }
[snip]

But

. di id[1]
7

Let me know where I've gone wrong.
