Yes. Formatting it like this may help to understand what's going on:
Code:
rept 1
{
     mov eax,eax
     struc myS
     {
       .mydata dd 1
}

       abc myS
     }

(A)
it's like the explanation of Tomasz, just above. (does compile)

(B)
B does not compile (?)

It is very difficult to find the common logic of work between rept-engine, macro-engine, struc-engine ... It seems there are several logics and not really a common engine. It seems that nestings of "{..}" are not the same in all engines. I have a hard time to have a overall view. This is not a bad criticism Tomasz, just it is difficult to try to understand "globally" (to have an overall view of) all these engines. (sorry for bad English)


Code:
;(A) does compile
rept 1 {
struc m2 { . dd ? }
} 
    
Code:
;(B) does not compile
macro m {
struc m2 { . dd ? }
} ;<-- illegal instruction

B does not compile because the "struc" is put inside the macro, so once the macro is created it is taken out of the source, leaving the last "}" all by it's self.


The "rept" leaves "struc m2 { . dd ?" behind, whereas the macro leaves nothing behind.

Hmm, I think it has nothing to do with that, Because ..
Code:
;does not compile
macro m {
struc m2 { . dd ? }
}
m ;<-- (incomplete macro)

;---------------------------------------
;does compile
macro m {
struc m2 { . dd ? \}
}
