Hi All,



I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice?



I am trying to run some simulations, and splitting them up into pieces and using the batch mode might make things a lot quicker, especially if i am using a cluster.



I am trying to do.



forvalues i = 1/2 {

winexec "\\myserverstata11\StataMP.exe" -e include batch.do

}





Where batch.do contains

clear all

set obs 10000

gen id = _n

gen var1 = `i'

save batch`i'.dta , replace



i seem to have trouble transferring the local macros in one activation of stata to another activation.



I was hoping someone would know a workaround for this problem.



Many thanks in advance



Adrian
