Dear Thomas try,

local month 01. Every time you type `month' Stata will read it as 01.
Best,
Rafa

Dear Statlisters:

I would like to store the number or string 01 to a local macro.
However, typing:
. local month=01

will produce:
. disp `month'
1

Other ways I tried include:
. local month="01"
. local `month'="01"

Any suggestions?
