Hi, I have a problem because I have many variables to put in my regression and with an excel file I have managed to prepare all the combination I want to put in my logistic regression. I named all my "X" in global macros such as M_1 M_2 .. M_150 global M_149 "level_0 level_1 level_2 level_3 skill_50pct marche_national emp20_49 emp50_99 emp100etplus nace17_1 nace17_2 nace17_3 " global M_149 "scale_ICT_internet int_emp07 skill_50pct marche_national emp20_49 emp50_99 emp100etplus nace17_1 nace17_2 nace17_3 " global M_150 "scale_ICT_internet int_emp07_d skill_50pct marche_national size size2 nace17_1 nace17_2 nace17_3 " but then : local i = 1 while `i'<177 { logit Y $M_`i' estimates store logit_M_`i' , title(M_`i') local i = `i'+1 } it doesn't work ! How can I deal with this? The problem is $M_1 in my loop is only recognized as 1 but if I put $M_1 it works. But I don't to copy paste at least 150 times !
