Hello,

I defined 3 global macros, each of them containing the names of variables: (... means there are a lot more variables in it)

global var1 "hope truth..."
global var2 "life death..."
global var3 "never loose..."

Now I want to summarize the global macros in blocks with:

foreach x of global var1 var2 var3 {
su `x'
}

But it does not work, it always runs through all variables without creating blocks. What is the problem?

-Nick
