Hi,

Maartin's example worked.  I needed to use

title("`title'")



Thanks,

Walt

I'm going to produce a series of graphs in which I want the fist line of the
title to always be "Database Analysis".  I created a local macro as

    local title "Database Analysis"

and then in the graph commands I used

    title(`title')

But the title came out as

    Database
    Analysis

I want the two words Database and Analysis on one line, the first, of each
graph.  How do I specify the macro to do this?
