Hi Maarten
It is not exactly where I am looking for. 

I now have the following in all my do-files where the first line changes accordingly (OBSAN_Data is in this case the name of the do-file):

      local filename .\temp\OBSAN_Data

in I have among lots of other stuff that is used for every do-file I write, the following line:

      log using `filename', replace text

I just want to get rid of the necessity to write the first line where I define the macro filename.
