There must be a very easy solution to this but I have been unable to find it:
When I define macros and run regressions interactively everything works fine. 
local demog "age female black hisp other"
reg hsgrad `demog'
When I put the same commands in a .do file, nothing works. It's as if the macros didn't exist at all and regressions are run with only a constant term. I tried defining a global macro too, but that didn't help either. Finally, I tried defining the macros interactively, and running the regressions from the .do file, and that didn't help either. Any ideas?
