Try
. local month="01"
. di "`month'"

. di `month' display the result of `month' as a number, but . di "`month'"
display the macro as a string

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?
