Hi all,
I am trying to use the loop function on a set of pre -existing variables 
variable 1) total_IS_0
variable 2) free_IS_0 
Variable 3) total_PCS_0 
Variable 4) free_PCS_0 
My syntax is....
foreach 'var' of varlist total_IS_0 free_IS_0 total_PCS_0 free_PCS_0 {
summarize 'var'
}
I have stat 12 and it is coming up with r 198 invalid name... I am not sure what is wrong with my syntax? Also is there a way to incorporate this loop function with the drop down selections option or is it only avaliable with manual entry?
Cheers,
