```You got carried away with all those quotes...

***
clear*

set obs 500
gen r=_n
gen t=runiform()
egen q=mean(t)

local r="(line t r, sort)"
local y="(line q r,sort)"

local m "`y' `r'"

di "`m'"

tw `m'

```Dear listers,
For some reason I cannot respond to responses to my posting yesterday.
Bare with me if the responses appear later.

I´ve rephrased the problem that I cannot come to grips with.

set obs 500
gen r=_n
gen t=runiform()
egen q=mean(t)

tw (line t r, sort) (line q r,sort)-->works fine

local r="(line t r, sort)"
local y="(line q r,sort)"

. di "`y'"
(line q r,sort)

. di "`r'"
(line t r, sort)

. local m "`y' " "`r'"

. di "`m'"
(line q r,sort) (line t r, sort)

. tw "`m'"
line        ( is not a twoway plot type
r(198);

What is the correct positioning of the " ´ and `in this problem???
