I agree with the spirit of Muhammad's post.

The key points are

1. (Once more) People get a strong signal when they join the list that
they should read the Statalist FAQ before posting. In this case
dimpol7 is failing to give their full name -- an explicit request in
the FAQ -- and also apparently ignoring the advice to look at Stata
documentation before posting.

2. In this particular case, the answer is Yes, and a strong hint is to
look for help and documentation on -forvalues- and -foreach-. Typing

. search forvalues

in Stata will give several pointers.
