st: Looping or macro needed???

I am running a regression and calculating a couple of difference in 
difference using data set Mat070809_aaa.

Ie.    use "P:\ProjectName \Mat070809_aaa.dta"

I have the do file up and working for this one dataset.

I now need to repeat the same regression for 7 more data sets 
Mat070809_bbb, Mat070809_ccc, Mat070809_ddd, Mat070809_eee, Mat070809_fff, 

Mat070809_ggg, Mat070809_hhh 

I am a very new Stata user but it seems to beg for some type of looping or 


Especially when I anticipate having to re-run each of the 8 regressions 
with 3 strata!  - Running 24 separate do files seems inefficient.

Any suggestions?
