Nick, You are right, I don't actually need to run this: xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.agegrp i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.id07 i.yydx, iterate(10) or xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.id07 i.yydx, iterate(10) or xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.id07 i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.yydx, iterate(10) or xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.id07 i.NRCENT i.yydx, iterate(10) or Since the output will be the same as if I just run the first: xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.agegrp i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.id07 i.yydx, iterate(10) or Sorry for that. I did have a look at the local macros, but I need to spend some more time thinking about what you say as its currently above my programming skills.

You should look at extended macro functions for list manipulation. Start with -help macro-. The key is to have a local macro with everything and subtract what you don't want each time.

The list of variables will always be the same, but although the list is the same, some variables move around the list - if they are the variable of interest i.e: > > > xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.agegrp i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.id07 i.yydx, iterate(10) or > xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.id07 i.yydx, iterate(10) or > xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.id07 i.NRCENT i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.yydx, iterate(10) or > xi: logit treatmentinsccnetre2 i.site_4 i.sex i.agegrp i.id07 i.NRCENT i.yydx, iterate(10) or > > What I would like to do is use the loop I employ for the unadjusted model, but be able to use something like `v' in order to condense the code from the above. > * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ _DISCLAIMER: This email and any attachments hereto contains proprietary information, some or all of which may be confidential or legally privileged.
