Dear all,

I have the following macro, but it doesn't work as I expected:
I have gov1, gov2


and I wrote:

local dvar=" gov`j' totalassets"
 local j=1

 while `j'<3{
  reg sales `dvar'
  local j = `j' + 1
   }

I expect this will run sales= gov1 totalassets and  sales= gov2 totalassets, but only the first one ran twice, no second one. Anyone could help me out?

Many thanks!

Martin
