Yes its the error message you received stating...

. abnor'var' invalid name
r(198);
Its not very informative as the online help indicates, but it does point out that you need to look at _exactly_ how you've typed your variable names. Although in this particular instance it was your mis-specification of single-quotes around the local macro that was the root cause of the error.

See -search r(198)- for more info.
