I am trying to call Stata within Matlab with the following command. run_id is the argument I am passing to stata as an index.
My question is: this run_id can take different values like 1,2,3,.... how to display the value of the run_id within ' ' such that the do-file take these values as argument. I checked but couldn't find a corresponding answer. Thanks, in advance!
system([stata_location ' -b do mydir/mydofile run_id']);
