Dear Nicola,
My guess is that you need to include `y' in the name of the saved plot. Otherwise it's just overwriting the file every time that the variable changes.

Something like this should work:

foreach y of varlist bwkg length pondi hcn man ssn trn  {
qnorm `y'
qui graph export "f:/Nicola/SWS_India2/qnorm`y'.png", replace
  }


Hope this helps,

Ana
