Hi Statalist,

In my do file, I'm putting a line break (///) for my local macro but I got a syntax error at the line break.

local ctlist2 ""Composite Index" "Life Expectancy" "Injury Death" "Cancer Death" "Spent 30%+ Income on Rent"  ///
 "Preventable Hospitalization" "Poor or Fair Health" "Obese" "Current Smoker""

Is there a way to avoid this error?
