I want to have a do-file performed in a number of directories, but it turns
out that the change directory command cd does not accept string scalars. 
Of course, 
    cd "c:\my data\stata"

works, but

    scalar mypath="c:\my data\stata"
    cd `=mypath'

does not. Does anyone know how to solve this? 

Thanks in advance,
