Thanks Maarten, Sound really a good idea! Just a follow up question. I am trying to check what the code does and therefore look into the macro `u_k' to make sure it contains what I want. In this simple case I want it to contain "u1 u2 u3". So I am typing: ----- clear scalar u1 = 1 scalar u2 = 5 scalar u3 = -1 local u_k "u1" forvalues i = 2/3 { local u_k "`u_k' u`i'" display `u_k' } display `u_k' ----- Why when I ask Stata to display the macro content inside the loop it works fine but when I ask it just after the loop, Stata does not return any value? I guess this is probably a naive question from a beginner Stata programmer, sorry!

In -dirifit- (downloadable from SSC) I stored the number of depedent variables in a global $S_k and the file dirifit_lf.ado started with: *! MLB 1.0.0 23 Mar 2006 program dirifit_lf version 8.2 local alpha_k "ln_alpha1" forvalues i = 2/$S_k { local alpha_k "`alpha_k' ln_alpha`i'" } args lnf `alpha_k' Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
