Congratulations, you've run into at-strings, one of Arc's more awkward features.

Interesting idea to quote a string. I'd somehow never thought of that!

Got it, thanks.

I guess the quote idea came from me thinking that the strings were being evaluated. My untrained mind thought "strings evaluate to themselves", but apparently not. So I used the single quote to prevent evaluation.

And it worked! Nicely done.
