Dear Statalist,

Maybe that's a silly question, but Google didn't give any answers:

I want to create a loop with foreach over ALL variables in a dataset,


It is not possible to write

foreach var1-var100

because the number and names of the variables vary from dataset to dataset and the do-file has to work for any dataset without making any changes.

Thanks a lot.

Best wishes,
