st: local macros & saving in directory

I coded:

----
version 7
local var "somevar"

... code in terms of `var'

out `var's using "d:\stata\export\`var's.asc", runtogether replace
----

However, the file is saved in dir <d:\stata> under the name
<export`var's.asc>, not as I expected in dir <d:\stata\export> as
<somevars.asc>.

Where is my mistake? Why does Stata strip off the slash before `var'?

Many thanks in advance, best wishes,
Daniel
