I'm running a validation syntax such as this:

if (var0010 = 1 and v0017 = 2) clean = 1. if (var0020 = 1 and v0027 = 2) clean = 1. if (var0040 = 1 and v0047 = 2) clean = 1. if (var0050 = 1 and v0057 = 2) clean = 1. ... ... ... if (var0750 = 1 and v0757 = 2) clean = 1.

As you can see it's a fairly long syntax, and as you can see var0010 increases by 10 every step for 75 steps until reaching var0750. I don't know if there is some kind of syntax doing a loop of some kind to save space and get the same results.
