... meaning the first such character.

The most obvious problem is the line 

    use "'allsvys'", clear

in which the ' character should be `.

I am a new user to the Stata 11.1 SE 

I have run into syntax problems with the - forvalues- command while creating a loop. 

My syntax which comes from Stata 9 is the following:

forvalues svy = 1/`max1' { 
    use "'allsvys'", clear
    keep if i==`svy'
}

and I get the following error : 

invalid syntax
r(198);

Subsequently, i would also like to run the following syntax (shortened for convenience)

foreach x of local names {
        if "`x'"=="lgsmkc" {        
            display "`x'"
            gen row`j'=lgcigc 
            local j=`j'+1
        }
}
