Jessica,

there is a typo in your loop. In the -if- statement there is one equal
sign instead of two. Aside from that, you do not need two loops, but
only one.

If your variables are really all string, this should work

foreach v of var variable1-variable200 {
        replace `v' = "." if inlist(`v', "missing", "not available")
}

If you are not sure whether all variables are string, use -ds- to
select all string variables.

Best
Daniel
