You don't say where the error occurred.

you could turn on -trace- by putting the following at the top of the program,  run it again and that would tell you where it is.

set tracedepth 1
set trace on

I imagine you'll find it's in the second -foreach- loop where `v' is undefined.

BTW, I don't see the point of either of the -foreach- loops: they only seem to go through once.

Hi Statalist,

Receive a "Varlist required" error for the following:

local limit=r(max)
 foreach v in tstat {
      g `v' = .
 gen which = ""

 forval i = 1/`limit' {
         display "Iteration of `i' of `limit"
         replace which = "`: label (id) `i''" in `i'
         dfgls fcf if id == `i' , maxlag(4) ers
		 matrix b = e(b)
		 matrix v = e(V)
		 local coeff = b[1,1]
		 local se1 = sqrt(v[1,1])
		 local tstat = coeff/se
		 qui foreach tstat in df {
                replace `v' = r(`v') in `i'

Any thoughts for what I am doing incorrectly?
