I stopped reading at

foreach var of PreturnoverEvent1-PreturnoverEvent55{

Read the help file for -foreach- to learn that
PreturnoverEvent1-PreturnoverEvent55 is, of course, not a legal list
type. You probably want

foreach var of var PreturnoverEvent1-PreturnoverEvent55 {

Also note that there should be a space between PreturnoverEvent55 and
the brace (i.e. {). There might be more errors in the code, but I
guess you should be able to catch them, reading the respective help
files caerfully.

Best

Dear All
[...] I wrote the code below but for some 'invalid syntax' error it didn't work.

gen PreEventTurnover=.
foreach var of PreturnoverEvent1-PreturnoverEvent55{
local first=((real(substr("`var'",17,2))*371)-370)
local last=(real(substr("`var'",17,2))*371)
local c=1
forvalues d=`first'(1)`last'{
replace PreEventTurnover= `var'[`c'] in `d'
local c=`c'+1
}
}

[...]
Can anyone help?
