Thank you Nick for your answer. I know that one repeat is allowed but thinking about my question
I saw the question had been not well formulated.
Now I must work with you answer because I don't know how to save r(1) to r(42) with the saving option after
-dstdize- or to built a loop with the macros.

This is a repeat of a question asked on Monday. FAQ advice is that one
repeat is allowed, but it is best to wonder why there were no answers.

In this case, I am not familiar with -dstdize-, so

1. Are you saying that the -saving()- option is not what you want?

2.  I guess you need to write a program (or do-file) if you prefer to
loop over the macros and copy their values into new variables. What
the new variables are depends on what structure you want.

Hi All,
I'm using Stata 12.1 on W7 and after -dstdize- I'd like to extract macros
(return list, in my case 42) in order to run -outfile- and obtain a labeled
set of  standardized rates.
I've obtained standardized rates from matrix (return list) by using -svmat-
Can someone help me?
