I got another error this time =exp required. Any suggestions? 

. foreach v of varlist em lnrwr lnreo lnpa lnna {
  2. bysort id: egen mean_`v'=mean(`v')
  3. drop mean_`v'
  4. gen wem wlnrwr wlnreo wlnpac
  5. }
=exp required
r(100);

Sinan,
You don't want brackets around the list of variables.

Sure, I inserted the variables and entered the commands as follows:

. foreach v of varlist  [em lnrwr lnreo lnpac] {
  2. bysort id: egen mean_`v'=mean(`v')
  3. drop mean_`v'
  4. gen wem wlnrwr wlnreo wlnpac
  5. }
varlist required
r(100);
