You must use a foreach loop, have a look at the manual. Say that `varlist' is a local macro containing all macro's you want to differentiate, then you should do something like:
foreach i in `varlist' {
	gen d_`i'=D.`i'

Hi , 

I want to difference all my variables in my dataset. Is there any command to generate many variables at once? instead of doing them one by one
