Dear statalists,
I encountered a loop problem.
The commands I edited are as follwows.
 
foreach j in a b c d {
foreach i in e f g {
if `j'==b {
count
}
else {
su
}
}
}
 
Sometimes the error was showed "b ambiguous abbreviation",sometimes
the error was "type mismatch".
What is wrong?
In my mind, -foreach lname in- can be followed by any_list.
Thank you for any explanation!
 
Best regards,
Grace
