Sounds like the embedded quotes were getting me the wrong answer. It works now.

Thanks,

Walt

Wrapping in graph titles (or axis labels, notes, captions, etc) occurs when there are embedded
quotes in the title, so "Database Analysis" will not wrap, `" " Database" "Analyses" "' will wrap.

Modifying Maarten's example, here's the wrapping:

*-------------- begin example ---------------
sysuse auto, clear
local title  " Database"  "Analysis"
forvalues i = 1/5 {
    scatter price mpg if rep78==`i', ///
            title("`title'")         ///
            name(gr`i', replace)
}
*--------------- end example ----------------

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?
I cannot reproduce your problem. Can you change the example
below such that it produces the behavior you reported?

*-------------- begin example ---------------
sysuse auto, clear
local title "Database Analysis"
forvalues i = 1/5 {
    scatter price mpg if rep78==`i', ///
            title("`title'")         ///
            name(gr`i', replace)
}
*--------------- end example ----------------

Hope this helps,
Maarten
