I would like to save file with date and time in file name, but I have
some trouble.
for eg:
sysuse auto,
save "toto$S_DATE.dta"
Stata is ok and i obtain
file toto12 Jul 2007.dta saved
But when I type
save "toto_$S_DATE_$S_TIME.dta"
Stata gives the following message
file toto_19:04:26.dta could not be opened
any help?
