You can also combine the two syntaxes 

local foo2 : display %06.2f foo

Yes, you can use Stata's expression evaluator inline.  For example:

     scalar foo = 12
     sc y x, note("The value of foo is: `=foo'")

The other alternative, as Oliver noted, is to place the value into a  
macro instead.  One advantage of this approach is that you can apply a  
display format to the value, if desired.  For example:

     . local foo: display %06.2f 12

     . di "`foo'"
