I am using variables defined outside a do file to be used inside the
code of do file. Following is the code:

	cd "D:\dofiles"
	do `under'
	cd "D:\dofiles"
	do `under'
	cd "D:/dofiles"
	do `under'
	local name = lower(`under')
	save `name'merged

but the argument that is passed to do file is null.
What could be wrong in it ?

Show us the code of one of the do-files that is called here (such as The contents of the macro should be referenced by `1' therein, as 
you have passed one argument to the do-file.
