Yeas,

The variable names are saba_L, saba_B, laba_L, laba_B   etc etc.
saba and laba are not variable names. The code below works

foreach  XX  in saba laba  {
tab `XX'_L  if `XX'_B != .
}

So the -foreach- question has been solved, but in combination with "_B"  and
"_L" the "saba" and "laba" still yield valid -varname-s, right? Otherwise
commands inside the loop will complain, I guess...

"saba" and "laba" are, apparently, not variable names so this is not a
varlist; try -foreach XX in saba laba {-
