> In your example you added just one new variable...if that's what you want you can do this: ********* clear sysuse auto tokenize price rep78 foreign weight headroom while "`1'" != "" { regress mpg length `1' /* if !mi(mpg) & !mi(`1') */ di "For the cmd: `e(cmdline)'" macro shift } ********* ((You don't need the missing part but it's in the regression above if you want to uncomment it)) If you want to sequentially build the model by adding more variables into the regression, you can add them to a local macro first, e.g., ********* clear sysuse auto tokenize price rep78 foreign weight headroom while "`1'" != "" { local i `1' `i' di "`i'" regress mpg length `i' di "For the cmd: `e(cmdline)'" macro shift } ********* ~ Eric __ Eric A.

It is similar to a forward stepwise except that I want to choose which variables I add. At the moment, I am doing the following: Model 1 reg y x1 if y<. & x1<. Model 2 - add another var reg y x1 x2 if y<. & x1<. &x2<.
