Dear Stata world,

I would like to create a for loop using global macros but Stata
continues to return an error message. What's going on here?:

This code works fine:

global cash "pocket"
foreach y of global cash {
display "`y'"
}
>pocket

The following, code on the other hand, does not:

global cash "pocket"
global check "bank"
foreach y of global cash check {
display "`y'"
}
>{ required
>r(100);

I also tried:

foreach y of global $cash $check {
display "`y'"
}
>{ required
>r(100);

What gives?
