I use -forvalues- to apply a block of code 100 times.  Each loop concludes
with the generation of a scalar called S1.  This contains a number.  

Is it possible to 'append' the values in these numeric scalars to form a
variable with 100 observations?

Presuming you have more than 100 obs. in memory I don't see why you would need to use post.

g result = .
forvalues i=1/100 {
    whatever…
    replace result = S1 in `i'
}

would do it.
