This code does more work than is necessary.
A better version is below. (Still not tested.)
tokenize "a b c d e"
qui forval i = 1/4 {
local I = `i' + 1
forval j = `I'/5 {
forval y = 1988/2003 {
forval m = 1/12 {
corr ``i'' ``j'' if year == `y' & month == `m'
replace ``i''``j'' = r(rho) if year == `y' & month == `m'
}
}
}
}
