Dear Statalisters,

I  wondered how to easily indicate the list of all the results from a
loop without typing one by one.  It is kind of like cumulative the
looped results. An example is as following.
local var A B C D E F G X Y Z                    // create 7 dummy
variables for each variable in `var'
foreach v of var {
foreach i of a b c d e f g  {
   g  `var'`i'=.
      replace `var'`i'=1 if group==`i'
      replace  var'`i'=0 if group~=`i'
end                                                              //
how to indicate all the dummy variables created without typing all of
them out
My question is : How to indicate the following list of variables
easily without typing each of them?
Aa Ab .....Ag Ba......Zg                 (variables are separated with blank)

Thank you!
