Dear Stata-listers,

Could you kindly tell me if it is possible to define a matrix A[1x6] of
characters as follows:

matrix A=[a b c d e f]

I tried going the long route as follows:

	foreach i in a b c d e f  {
		gen `i'= "`i'"
	}
	mkmat a b c d e f , matrix(A)
	
	varlist:  a:  string variable not allowed
	r(109);

I got an error message as you can see...

Thanks in advance.

Amani
