Hi,
maybe this works for you

gen int newvar = 0
local row = 0
forval i = 1(5)305 {
local row = `row' + 1
replace newvar = `i' in `row'
}

One word of caution:
When using steps of 5 maybe you want to go to 306 and
not just to 305? Otherwise the last observation will stay
zero.
To make the example work put a :

clear
set obs 62

in front of the previous code.

Best
Oliver
