First, I assume that that "until" is not to be taken
literally and that all your globals contain lists
of variable names (which don't need expansion).

Then what you want is I think

foreach i of local out {
local x : list xvars - i
reg `i' `x'

Note incidentally that, although it was not part
of your question,

foreach i in out

is quite wrong for what you want.

Both this point and the answer to your question are
spelled out in the help, so perhaps you should indicate
to StataCorp what is unclear in their documentation.

I tried to see but still couldn't figure out.
so you mean there is an option command for me to tell xvars to not include i ?
