st: Updating the value of a specific cll of a matrix using the value of a variable |

I have created a double loop to generate counter variable values that will then be entered into an OUTPUT matrix. Everything except for 1 line seems to be working. The line is here: matrix OUTPUT[`i', `j'] = counter * where i and j are the row and column indexes for the two loops and INPUT is defined as a 14x122 matrix *STATA writes: counter not found. But then I write: display counter * STATA shows the value of counter, say 4: 4 *yet, if I use the same code and instead of the variable counter use a number, it works (the matrix OUTPUT is updated): matrix OUTPUT[`i', `j'] = 4 *I.e. the program does not recognize the variable counter when I want to udpate the matrix using its values. I have tried to use `counter' instead of counter but an error is reported again.
