If you display the -tw- line:
di "tw `list' (rcap higcs logcs m)"

You'll see that it will read:
tw e0 e1 e2 (rcap higcs logcs m)
which is not what you want (I think).

Why not try:
local e`r' ="(bar gcs m if `2'==`r') "
local list `list' `e`r''

Subject: st: programming loop local question

I´m automating a bar graph program with ci and everything is working
out allright except for this loop and local variable that I cannot
figure out.
.....bunch of stuff first
local r=0

while p+1>`r'{
	gen e`r'="(bar gcs m if `2'==`r') "
	
	local list `list' e`r'
	local r=`r'+1
	}

tw `list' (rcap higcs logcs m)


and I get :

invalid 'e1'
r(198);



Error searching with a display of the local :

local r=0

while p+1>`r'{
	di p
	di `r'
	gen e`r'="(bar gcs m if `2'==`r') "
	di e`r'
	local list `list' e`r'
	di `list'
	local r=`r'+1
	}

tw `list' (rcap higcs logcs m)



2
0
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==0)
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==0)
2
1
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==1)
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==0) (bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==1)
2
2
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==2)
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==0) (bar gcs m if
maxaisorgansystemhead==1) (bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==2)
(bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==0) (bar gcs m if
maxaisorgansystemhead==1) (bar gcs m if maxaisorgansystemhead==2)
invalid 'e1'
r(198);


I´m sure there is a simple solution but I´ve trying with all sorts of
different " " ´` combinations without getting it to work and the last
display of the local seems to work so I really dont have a clue...

Regards,

Moleps
