How do I do this without having to type the commands 15 times? I'm familiar with "forvalues loops" but this doesn't seem to solve my problem. It works for me: forvalues i = 1/15 { di "foo" } The trick is that you don't need to use local macro `i' that changes across itterations. -- Maarten --------------------------------- Maarten L.
