Think that you are just missing the second ")" after '.sav'

Subject: Error in constructing a macro for matching.
I encountered following error message using SPSS 12.0:
>Error # 6838 in column 3. Text: /
>A macro expression includes an operator which is syntactically correct but
>which has not yet been implemented in the macro language. This is probably
>an instance of an attempt to use an arithmetic operator such as addition or
>This command not executed.
This error was produced executing the following syntax:
DEFINE !match (start = !TOKENS(1)
/stop = !TOKENS(1)).
!DO !months = !start !TO !stop.
Due to this error the macro was never defined. Is there a way around this
problem? Does it occure in SPSS 13.0 as well?
