Your code worked flawlessly.  Many thanks, Maarten.

I started by recreating your error messages and thus created the global
$ivlist, but than in my solution changed it into a local. I did not
change that everywhere, but because the global still hang around, I
did not get an error message. The correct code should be:
*----------------- begin example ------------------
sysuse auto, clear
reg mpg displacement turn gear_ratio
local ivlist "displacement turn gear_ratio"
foreach var of varlist `ivlist' {
local list1 : list ivlist - var
di "`list1'"
local numvars : word count (`list1')
adjust `list1', xb by(foreign)
sum `list1'
*-------------- end example -----------------------
