Try 

forval i = 1/3 { 
	mlogit munomi7 `model_`i'' 
	estimates save model_`i' 
}

i want to loop over local macros, not over the items in the locals. I 
want to estimate 3 multinominal logit models. One with the variables in 
local macro "model_1" as independent variables in the model, one with 
the  variables in local macro "model_2" .....  and so on.  Only three 
Modells.

local set1_mig "migdummy1 migdummy2"
local set2_sex "fr49 fr48"
local set3_educ " schulart_e1 schulart_e2"


local model_1 "`set1_mig'"
local model_2 "`model_1' `set2_sex'"
local model_3 "`model_2' `set3_educ'"

foreach macro of varlist "`model_1'" "`model_2'" "`model_3'" {
mlogit  munomi7 `macro'
estimates save mlogit`macro'
  }
I cant find the right syntax for the foreach command.
