imply or infer that I am suggesting that anyone reads _all_ the documentation. You had a question about -foreach- (etc.) and the help for -foreach- explained your problem. -search foreach- pointed to resources directly relevant to your question. Moving forward, you have a new question, which is in essence that you don't get any estimates. As it stands, that question is not answerable. Please show us the relevant syntax and tell us more about your data. Ideally, illustrate your problem with data we can all access.
