Dear all,

In order to place text "here-->" in a -twoway line- graph at x-value 250 and y-value 100 one types

. twoway (line Yvals Xvals, sort), ttext(100 250 "here-->", orientation(vertical))

I would like to automize the placement of text messages in -twoway line- graphs (sometimes there are 5 or more observations that I would like to mark). Therefore, I would like to create a local macro (MarkStr) which contains the content of the -ttext- option. Unfortunately, however, I do not manage to fill in double quotes in local macros. 

While I can produce local macro MarkStr with content "100 250 here-->" by typing

. local MarkStr "100 250 here-->"

I do not manage to produce a macro containing the string: "100 250 "here-->""

Any idea on how to solve this issue or to more efficiently mark certain points in line graphs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your help.
