Dear all

Im using -foreach- but seem to loose all my value labels when doing so.
How can I keep the labels in the output from -foreach-?

this is my do file

foreach xx in m_agegr==0 m_agegr==15 m_agegr==20 m_agegr==25
m_agegr==30 m_agegr==35 m_agegr==40 m_agegr==45 smoking_status==0
smoking_status==1 smoking_status==2 smoking_status==3    {
        use Work\Temp4, clear
        display "`xx'"
        keep if `xx'
        gen atc_yes = 1 if ga_atc==1
        gen atc_no = 1 if ga_atc==0
        collapse (sum) atc_yes atc_no
        gen str30 group="`xx'"
        if "`xx'" != "m_agegr==0" append using Work\Q4
    save Work\Q4, replace
    }


Thanks
