Carlo asks
. foreach x of varlist b1-b36 {
  2. summarize `x'
3. }
  I would like to generate a newvar in which the r(mean) for each one  
of the 36 variables included in varlist are stored. How can I do this  
in Stata 9.2/SE?

No need to use a foreach loop.

tabstat b1-b36, save
mat mu = r(StatTotal)'
mat li mu

If for some reason you want these in a variable, use -svmat-:

svmat mu

which creates variable mu1, obs. 1-36.
