Dear all,

I am still a Stata novice and first post on statalist, I have tried to follow all rules, but please bear with me if I got something wrong...:-)

I am working with Stata 15, panel data from 1978q1-2018q4, roughly 28 countries (exporter importer). In total I have 57 variables and 51'070 observations.
Here's an example (let me know if you need more observations):

The dummies are equal to unity after the year specified in the name e.g. d_06Q3 = 1 if time>tq(2006q3)

What I want to do is to run several ppml regressions as below, but each time with different dummies as the interaction term (so that in the regression below d_06Q2 is replaced by d_06Q3 in the next regression etc.) :

Code:
 ppmlhdfe value c.size##d_06Q2 c.distwces##d_06Q2 c.trade##d_06Q2 pta##d_06Q2, absorb(imp#time exp#time imp#exp);
What I am interested in is the pseudo-likelihood result of the in total 17 regressions.

As I have 17 dummies and 40 variables, it is quite tedious to go and adjust each interaction term, which is why I tried using the following as a loop (for the purpose of this question i limited the list to d_06Q2-d_06Q4, in the end it will be d_06Q2-d_10Q2):

Code:
foreach var in d_06Q2-d_06Q4 {
ppmlhdfe value c.size##`var' c.distwces##`var' c.trade##`var' pta##`var' c.lend_diff##`var' c.dep_diff##`var' c.monmar_diff##`var' no_cuc##`var' pre_peg##`var' pre_band##`var' de_facto_peg##`var' pre_cpeg##`var' pre_cband##`var' defacto_cpeg##`var' defacto_cband##`var' pre_cband_2pc##`var' defacto_cband_5pc##`var' mov_band_2pc##`var' defacto_mov_band##`var' free_float##`var' free_fall##`var' dual_market##`var' contig##`var' comlang_off##`var' comlang_ethno##`var' colony##`var' comcol##`var' curcol##`var' col45##`var' smctry##`var', absorb(imp#time exp#time imp#exp)
}
What I thought I would get was one "table" of output with the pseudo-likelihood for each regression. Instead I get one, where all dummies as interaction terms are listed, and one pseudo-likelihood:

Now to my question...first of all, perhaps to understand the foreach command better - why does it do this? Secondly, (and more importantly) what can I do instead to get the individual regression results without running them all separately?

Thank you in advance for your patience and any replies!
