-dydx(")- should be -dydx(*)-. 

A " indicates the start of a string, so Stata sees:

margins, dydx(

Than a ", so it thinks `now a string is starting, lets wait 
till it ends' and ofcourse it doesn't end. So after parsing
it is left with the fragment -margins, dydx(- and it asks
you `he, where is the closing bracket?'

Hope this helps,
Maarten
