The problem is that the filename needs to be in quotes (as it contains spaces)... try

saving("`file`i''")

Interestingly, built-in programs with the -saving()- option don't seem to suffer from this problem... for example

sysuse auto
tempfile test
scatter headroom trunk, saving(`test')

works fine, despite their being spaces in the path - it comes up with the DOS abbreviated version...  C:\DOCUME~1\ etc.
