I want to find out for each case totally how many times the values for 
var1,var 2....var20 are under 10.

....

===============================================================

Hope this helps:

    generate sum_var=0
    foreach V of varlist var1-var20 {
       replace sum_var=sum_var+1 if `V'<10
    }
