levelsof id, local(ID)

foreach I of local ID {
	hprescott myvar if id == `I', stub(foo)
}

egen foo = rowmax(foo*_*)


This code shouldn't run at all (beyond the first ID) because it will try to reuse the same variable names for each ID. You need to make the stubs vary by ID, like

stub(foo`i')

You will then get foo1.., foo2..., etc. and you can use the rowmax trick on them.
