Hi,
I spent the night programming some stuffs but cannot understand why I
don't obtain the expected results. I was expecting "%" but got
"Value". What am I doing wrong?

	noi se tr on
	loc list1 a
	loc list2 a b c
	loc d
	foreach j of loc list1 {
	   foreach k of loc list2 {
	      if "`j'" == "`k'" loc d %
	      else loc d Value
	   } // foreach k
                }
	di "`d'"
