Hello Rui,
Yes, it should be the one I want. I modified the code as:

for(i in grep("data", names(df))) {
  try2.un$ab2 <-
    ifelse(grepl("ab2",  [i]),   [i], NA)

But I got error message: 
Error: unexpected '[' in:
"  try2.un$ab2 <-

I think I use [i] in a wrong way. Do you have any suggestion?

Something like this?

for(i in grep("date", names(df))) {

Hope this helps,
