Problems with the DO command

Thanks for your input Klaus, unfortunately your suggestion didn't work.
When put in a nested loop this statement fills a field with 10 rows of ten
put mytable[tx,ty] after last char of fld "mydisplay"
To use the do command the statement needs to be in a container or contained
in quotes. In either case the statement ends in double quotes
do "put mytable[tx,ty] after last char of fld "mydisplay""
which is why I replaced the 'nested' quotes with the literal quote which
required the & operator which do doesn't seem to like :(
The first statement above only fails when put in quotes and executed through
the do command.
