```Do[ thingstodo, {i,{20,200,300,400}}] will cycle i through the values
20,200,300,400.

You should separate statements in the Do loop with ";" It works just
fine. If you want output, use Print. If you want to deliver more
complex result you might consider lists.

May I offer the advice to start reading some introductory texts that
Mathematica offers in its Documentation centre? Or are you planning to
learn everything by guessing and asking random questions in this
group?
