Hi,

I have the following problem, I want to run a loop on all the dta
files in a directory, I currently have the following code, but am
having difficulties because I get an error when a do file is included
in the r(files) macro. Is there anyway I can run this only on .dta
files? My code is as following...

log using jfilesearch, replace
fs
foreach var in `r(files)' {
clear
use `var'
capture, describe *gdp*
}
log close

Regards,
Nikhil
