I'm a bit fuzzy on what your question is exactly -- but I think you want to define something to do to `vn' in your program -smcprog-...if so you can do something like:

cap prog drop myprog
cap prog drop smcprog
prog def smcprog
syntax anything
***list and summarize mpg/rep78 for `vn'***
li mpg rep78  if make=="`anything'"
su mpg rep78 if make=="`anything'"

prog def myprog
gettoken first 0:0
loc k `first'
forvalues n=1/`k'{
loc vn=make[`n']
dis _col(10)"{stata smcprog `vn':`vn'}"

sysuse auto, clear
myprog  10

When the user clicks an ID, I want the program smcprog.ado to go get a stata dataset that includes many ID numbers but then use only the data for the ID that was clicked to carry out other tasks.
