Is there a reason for the - local name  "`var'"- line? I could also omit it
and pass -("`var'")- to the -postfile- and be just as happy, I think...

Here is oneway:

sysuse auto
tempname memhold
tempfile results
 postfile `memhold' str12 name double t using `results', replace
foreach var  of varlist head-gear {
local name  "`var'"
	qui reg mpg `var'
	matrix e =e(b)
	matrix v = e(V)
	local t = abs(e[1,1]/sqrt(v[1,1]))
	post `memhold' ("`name'") (`t')
}
postclose `memhold'
use `results'
gsort -t
l
