Dear All,

I am using Stata 10.0 and have written the following code.


foreach j in 1000 750 500 400 300 250 200 150 {
	use "E:\Small Clusters Paper\INIS datasets\INIS.0.04.`j'.dta", clear
	foreach var of varlist b24age_lm_coef-n24delay_2_lm_coef {
		summ `var', det
		post INIS_coef (4) (`j') (`var') (r(mean)) (r(p5)) (r(p95))


However I was wondering how I would be able to -post- the name of the variable in question rather than the value of the variable?   I have searched the FAQ and archive but have not found how to post the variable name and not the label.

Thank you,
