Try without the quotation marks around `note1'
If you expand out the macro it's actually tsline hits, "note("1 2011")"
The quotation marks around the options isn't valid Stata syntax.

Hope that helps.

Hello all, 
       Could someone attempt to explain this to me? I just can't get over
this hump. 

local m1= title[1]
local note1 "note" "(" `"" 1  `m1'" "' ")" 
local note2   1 `m1' 
di "`note1'"
note(" 1  2011" )

di "`note2'"
1 2011

tsline hits, "`note1'"
invalid syntax although if you write it out, it would be  tsline hits,
note("1 2011") which looks fine tsline hits, note("`note2'") stata is happy 

Thanx..
