Quite apart from the main discussion here, the "for" construct is out of date, and I do not recall Martin B. saying anything about his using Stata 8 or earlier. Use -forvalues- or -foreach- instead as shown in my earlier post...

Is there any way that I can select all the numerical variable
in a dataset? For example, I want to use:

for var equity net_income cash_fixinv : replace X=. if X==0.0001

You can just put a cap on it.

for var _all : cap replace X=. if X==0.0001
