Dear all,

Is there a way to save somewhere the file names found with Stata's dir command?

I have this problem where I need to fish out a list of weekly files
from a directory, and do things to them one by one. They are named
fileYYYYMMDD.txt but they don't necessarily come on the same day of
the week, and some weeks are skipped.

It would be good if I could produce a list of YYYYMMDD's and take it
from there, and I want Stata to just read the file names and remember
them -- whether as a macro or a list (I have no other name for a
vector with non-numeric elements).

Has anybody done this in Stata before?

Thank you,
