Hello all,


I want to repeat the same estimation for a set of samples each written in different files (say DataFile1.txt, DataFile2.txt…). I think that a “foreach” command would be adequate but how exactly?


Secondly, I want the results to be saved in a single file, it means appending to an output file. I thought using something like


matrix A=e(b)

svmat A

gen count=_n


outsheet A1-A35 using resultsStata.txt if count==1, nonames


but, the problem is that it won’t save if the file “resultStata.txt” already exists. Obviously, if I use the replace command,  it will erase the previous estimations. What can I do?


Thanks to all
