Dears,

Either I have a bug, or there is a bug. Given that the trace does not show
the operations stata does on pull-down menues, I would be grateful for your
help in debugging

If I write in profile.do
. global diss `"C:/My Documents/Here"'
. window menu append submenu "stUser" "DoEdit"
. window menu append item "DoEdit" "gss_dataset_description" `"doedit
"$diss/GSS/do/3gss_dataset_description.do" "'
then, when I click on the entry in the menue, I get
. invalid 'Documents' 
r(198);
which of course is the word documents in the path "my documents"


If I write
. global diss `"C:/My Documents/Here"'
. window menu append submenu "stUser" "DoEdit"
. window menu append item "DoEdit" "gss_dataset_description" `"doedit
`"$diss/GSS/do/3gss_dataset_description.do"' "'
then the file editor lauches, but the content is white rather then showing
the code

I tried to put compounds quotes whereever possible possible to no avail.
Any suggestion?
Or bug confirmation?

Thanks
Renzo Comolli
