It is not clear what you are trying to achieve. I am thinking that you want
some kind of counter. Then say -loc j 0- and step the counter with -loc
++j-. No need for a variable there. If you want something else, please say
so...

Yes, but you can change the value of a variable in one do-file from a  
different do-file?

Is there a way to run a do-file (ie secondary do-file) from inside
another do-file (ie primary do-file) and change a variable inside the
secondary do-file?
For example,
replace j=1
do "C:\xyz.do"
replace j=2
do "C:\xyz.do"
