Daniel,

First, you don't say which error you encounter. Please elaborate.
Second, you can include a -di- command  in your loop to check if the
values of k are the values you need.

capture {
  forvalues k=1/3 {
    if `k' < 100 local k 0`k'
    if `k' < 10 local k 0`k'
    di "k = `k'"
etc.

Friedrich
