No, leave z as is, means do NOT change it, i.e. it should NOT be part
of your -foreach- loop. I suggest you first run the example below as is
discussed here http://home.fsw.vu.nl/m.buis/stata/exampleFAQ.html#work
and than adapt it one step at a time to your problem.

Hope this helps,
Maarten

*------------------ begin example --------------------
webuse laborsup, clear
ivtobit fem_inc fem_educ kids (other_inc=male_educ), ll

// Notice that other_inc is NOT included
foreach var in fem_educ kids {
sum `var' if e(sample), meanonly
clonevar t`var' = `var'
replace `var' = r(mean)
}

predict fem_inc_hat, ystar(10,.)
twoway line fem_inc_hat other_inc, sort

// return fem_educ and kids to their original values
foreach var in fem_educ kids {
replace `var' = t`var'
drop t`var'
}
compress
