Use a -local-:

****
sysuse auto, clear
local myregressors " weight length turn displacement"
regress price weight length turn displacement
*equivalently
regress price `myregressors'

dear all:

i am wondering how to use an abbreviation for a long list of explanatory variables in a regression command (for the purpose of repeating it).

for example, consider the command:

reg y xyz qwe abc

if I want to use z to refer to the list "xyz qwe abc" so that I can write something shorter such as:

reg y z

I am not quite clear about the exact syntax that would work. Thanks a lot for your help.
