Bert,

I have no idea what is going on here, but try setting the local using
the evaluator and double quotes

loc my_test_local = "Hello"

or evaluate the local, as in

n di "`macval(my_test_local)'"

Either way works for me (Stata release 12 on a Windows 7 OS).

Best
Daniel

Dear Statalist,

I am trying to make some slight modifications to xtreg_fe.ado and am
having problems creating local macros inside the ado-file.

When I try to create a local macro, it does not seem to be recognized
within the ado-file.
