Matt answered the main query. For copying to a local macro 

local sgntr `r(datasignature)' 
local sgntr "`r(datasignature)'"
local sgntr = r(datasignature) 

all seem fine. As I understand it, there are no characters within
signatures that could be misread as operators.

Thanks Matt.

You're almost there.  Try: 

	dis "data signature is  " r(datasignature)

Note that -r(datasignature)- does not need to be evaluated as a macro.
