st: Re: local macros & saving in directory
I don't think you made a mistake. I guess it's a bug or something. It only
happens for a slash right before a local macro. Perhaps only Stata staff can
find out the reason since outfile is a built-in command. It will save to the
right directory if you try either
out `var's using "d:\stata\export\add`var's.asc"
* add something between slash and macro
out `var's using "d:\stata\export\\`var's.asc"
* add another slash
