Subject:   Macro Definitions -- "\" seems to be a reserved word?

I am trying to use the macro facility. Below is what I'm getting back. What is going wrong?

INPUT PROGRAM. DEFINE TYPEFIL() "SAHH" !ENDDEFINE. DEFINE YRCODE() "96" !ENDDEFINE. DEFINE NAMPATH() !CONCAT("E:\ERLY_DCH\",TYPEFIL,"\ORIGINAL DATA\",TYPEFIL,"VB",YRCODE) !ENDDEFINE. DEFINE SAVPATH() !CONCAT("E:\ERLY_DCH\",TYPEFIL,"\SPSS SYSTEM DATA\",TYPEFIL,"\VB",YRCODE, ".SAV") !ENDDEFINE.

FILE HANDLE COMMON /NAME = NAMPATH

>Warning # 206 in column 30. Text: \ >An invalid character has been found on a command.

.....MORE WARNINGS OF #206 FOLLOWED BY BUNCHES OF CANNOT EXECUTE COMMAND....
