I do not know why you want to -display- it instead of using it for your -graph- thing. But omit the quotes aorund the -display- directive and there will be no error. You also should not change the line continuation I use...

I get an error msg running your code-seems to be missing a double
quote in the beginning of the string-and I still dont get how to pass
the double quotes.

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. levelsof for, local(levs)
0 1

. foreach level of local levs{
 2. loc xt `xt' `level' /* */  "`:label(foreign) `level''"
 3. }

. di "`xt'"
0 Domestic" 1 "Foreign"" invalid name
r(198);

end of do-file
