Dear Statalists,
I met some confusing problem and refered to the
reference book but haven't got any clue yet.

Here's my code in the do file:

......
gen last_occu=ro_jcd01 
 
for ro_jcd02-ro_jcd10 : last_occu=@ if @!=. 
.....


Everytime the computer told me:
"ro_jcd02-ro_jcd10" invalid list type 
while these are valid variables in my dataset

I appreicate your help very much.

best,
FF
