You can certainly use -forvalues- for a numeric range. That wasn't the point I was making.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I will  check the help file for collapse and tabstat

the group takes the value of 1-6, and the varible FF_group_rank_0
takes values of 1-6 stating six groups, so I want to loop for each
group, I guess I need to use forvalues rather than foreach?

Thanks
Qing
