Thanks Nick,

However I tried that (without double quotes) and the outcome is:
France not found       //Which happened to be the first country in the list
r(111);

When I include quotes, i.e. local name = "coutnry1[`y']", countries are
properly displayed but they do NOT appear in the graph title. The titles
still display "country1[1]" as a title for France.

Rafa
