Hi again,

Another one that I do not understand:

  forvalues x=1/2 {;
    if `x'==1 {
      local bt="bt_m";
      local gt="gt_m";
    if `x'==2 {
      local bt="bt_v";
      local gt="gt_v";
    forvalues y=1/20 {;
      if `y'==20 {;
        local groep="b_lft95_"+"`gesl'";
      if `y'!=20 {;
        local groep="b_lft"+string((`y'-1)*5)+"_"+string(`y'*5)+"`gesl'";
      replace `groep'=`groep'*`bt'/`gt';

Why does this complain like:
/gt_m invalid name

I guess it thinks the backslash is part of the string. Can I do something
about that? Notice that it doesn't seem to think this with the *`bt'...

Thanks, best regards,
