Suppose you had a variable, sample, that took values 1, 2, 3, 4. Then perhaps you could do something like this:

forval i = 1(1)4

tempfile tf`i'

(estimation) if sample==`i'

(your matrix stuff)

outsheet (stuff) using `tf`i''


dsconcat `tf1' `tf2' `tf3' `tf4'

Not sure what you are estimating, but in place of your using the estimation matrices directly, have you looked into <outreg> or <parmest>?

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


outsheetA1-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
