This works for me: 

. tempname myfile 

. postfile `myfile' time using postfiletest.dta , replace         
(note: file postfiletest.dta not found)
                                                 
. foreach i in 6 12 18 {                          
  2.         local  time  `i'        
  3.     post  `myfile'   (`time')     
  4.     }

. postclose `myfile'                              

. preserve

. use postfiletest, replace       

. list , noobs

. restore

This works when I post the i (time-variable) so I suppose I am in the
vicinity of success (however I don´t understand why the full code doesn´t
work (error message r198 about the variable time).

clear
tempname  resul
postfile `resul'  time     using H:\Slask\slask2.dta , replace 	
						
foreach i in 6 12 18 {				
	local  time  `i'	
    post  `resul'   (`time')     
    }
postclose `resul'					

preserve
use H:\Slask\slask2.dta 	, replace	
list , noobs
restore

I imagine that you need to look more carefully at the variable in question.

I get the following error message (note, the variable time in my example
corresponds to the variable fönster in my real syntax so the error message
is about the variable fönster)
