You cannot simply abbreviate your list of end dates like a -numlist- with a slash and hope for Stata`s acquiescence...

So ideally, I would like to loop with -foreach- over a series of dates, but I cannot find the way of doing this. To give you an idea of the kind of problem, here it is in pseudo-code (not working): *** begin pseudo-code foreach t in 1992q1/2000q4 { reg y L.y L.x if tin(1960q1, `t') reg y L.y L.x if tin(`=`t'-20', `t') } *** end pseudo-code I am sorry if this is a trivial question, but I really could not find a way of performing this. Thanks for any hints.
