Thank you, Timothy.

The last line does not work and returns an error  [either r(603) or
r(198)depending on how I write the macro ](see below). All rest works
well. Indeed,  the directory is created.



******************* BEGIN: test1.do
local name = "test_directory"
cd C:\
mkdir "`name' "
// my do file
save "C:\`name'\current_data.dta"
******************* END: test1.do

It shows up:

file C:`name'\current_data.dta could not be opened
r(603);

******************* BEGIN: test2.do
local name = "test_directory"
cd C:\
mkdir "`name' "
// my do file
save "C:\"`name'"\current_data.dta"
******************* END: test2.do

It shows up:
invalid 'test_directory'
r(198);
