```Here is what you have:

- global N = 1
- local Var\$Nvs\$N "(g\${N}vs\${N} : -("
= local Var1 "(g1vs1 : -("
- local one "x + y))"
- local Var\${N}vs\${N} "`Var\${N}vs\${N}' `one'"
= local Var1vs1 " x + y))"
- di "Var\${N}vs\${N} is  `Var\${N}vs\${N}' "
= di "Var1vs1 is   x + y)) "
Var1vs1 is   x + y))

Here is what you wanted:

- global N = 1
- local Var\${N}vs\${N} "(g\${N}vs\${N} : -("
= local Var1vs1 "(g1vs1 : -("
- local one "x + y))"
- local Var\${N}vs\${N} "`Var\${N}vs\${N}' `one'"
= local Var1vs1 "(g1vs1 : -( x + y))"
- di "Var\${N}vs\${N} is  `Var\${N}vs\${N}' "
= di "Var1vs1 is  (g1vs1 : -( x + y)) "
Var1vs1 is  (g1vs1 : -( x + y))

Best, Sergiy
