Dear Statalisters,

Suppose I've done some programming that creates a macro containing a string representation of a command. For example:

. ma list vL
vL: label var EMOID_OA_CR_plac "Emotion ID, Overall Correct Response Count, On Placebo."

How do I now execute that string in a macro as if I had type it in, or had written it explicitly as part of a do-file?

If I search on "execute string" in help, there is no response.

Thanks

Paul

Simply type the name of the macro, enclosed in `' marks, as if it were a command.
If vL is the name of your macro, then type
`vL'
