Can anyone see the problem?

I have global macros

mac list
catvar1_totline: 2
catvar2_totline: 9

When I try to use them with the following code I get an error

forvalues j = 1 / 2 {
forvalues k = 1 / ${catvar`j'_totline} {
di "`k'. ${catvar`j'vname`k'"
}
}

The error is:

- forvalues k = 1 / ${catvar`j'_totline} {
unrecognized command: catvar1_totline

Leaving the braces off gives "invalid syntax."

. di ${catvar1_totline}
2


Thanks

Fred
