wrong characters surrounding your value
not    acute,acute   <value> single quotation, single quotation
but double quotation <value>      double quotation
or  single quotation <value>      single quotation

> which gives me the following error:
>    bash: u at h:w: No such file or directory

result of your using acute (backtick) which means, now execute
next things as a command.
