Friedrich, I have tried this change also but it is still not helping.
I am rephrasing my problem. I have 9 data  file with name -
level`l'data.dta - for which I  want to write  code

this is how I have done

local levels "3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
foreach l of local levels {
use "level`l'data.dta", clear
merge common_id using "\level`=l'+1' data.dta"
drop _merge
sort common_id
 }
save "level3_9data.dta",replace


Please help as it is really bugging me
