Oliver is assuming that the local `foreign' (now `x') contains
something, but I guess (one of the) problem(s) is that it does not
contain anything at all.

There are minor issues I would like to address first.

1. When looping over any_list, you have to use -in- not -of- (see help foreach).
2. The local name must not be given in -foreach lname-, not it's
content (see help foreach).
3. The use of  wildcards like (*ger) inside the loop will not do what
you probably expect. How is Stata supposed to calculate `x'_ims *
usager belger chinbrd ...?

It is hard to give better advice, but I guess you need to loop over
two lists (of country names)?
