Dear listers,
I´m trying to expand a local string for every category of another
variable and generate custom tickmarks and labeling on a graph. The
problem is that I do not understand how to pass quotes in a macro for
-xlabel- to understand it.

foreach var in `w'{
	
	local zar=(`za'+(o+1)*(`gt'))
	local xt `xt' `zar' ----here I´d like to pass -quote-`var' quote..
however I cannot figure out how to do this without getting error
messages.
	
	local ++gt
	}


tw `q', xtitle(`3') xlabel(`xt´) ytitle(`1') name(`1',replace)
legend(subtitle(`2')) legend(`z')


also -how can I pass the valuelabels for the different cateogires of var- ??


Regards,

M
