Dear Statalist Users,

I have recently begun to use Stata and have run into the problem
writing a foreach loop. I have a large dataset of variables, paired in
a way that var1 and var2 are together, var3 and var4 are together, and
so on. I am writing a foreach loop for each individual odd variable
and, everytime the program loops, I need to include a subsequent even
variable as well. So, for example, given that var1 is `x', I need to
include var2 into the program, too (in essence, `x' + 1). The problem
doesn't seem to be very difficult, and I am sure there is a simple
solution to it, but I just can't find it anywhere. Thank you for your
consideration, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dmitriy
