Hi all,

The syntax below works fine if I highlite all rows and click on run". Is
this what is called "a Stata session"? However, immediately after that,
Stata forgets the content of the local macros. Is it possible to make the
the local macros functioning until I close down Stata. 


local mynames   "Stockholm  Uppsala  Södermanland  Kronoberg"

token `mynames'					

local mycount: word count `mynames'		

forv i=1/`mycount' {

      local lannr = `i' + 21
      di " "
      di " "
	di in r "``i''"
