Dear Statalisters,

I have a small macro - char problem.

I define the following:

char totinco[outname] "Total Income (\$US)"
local outname: char totinco[outname]

Now I display the char and macro.
. char l totinco[outname]
totincom[outname]: Total Income ($US)

. di "`outname'"
Total Income ()

Notice the $US is omitted in the macro but not the char. I have tried various ways to get it to display, but without success. Any suggestion?

Thanks,

Fred Wolfe
