There were in fact several things wrong with your code:

1. missing quotes
2. wrong function: PageTextVar() is used to exctract a PTV
3. use of $pagename: use $pn rather than $pagename as $ pagename may
   have a different value.
4. PTV name: if the PTV is named in the page 'myvar', then
   that should be used a parameter in the PageTextVar() call.
   PageVar($pn, "myvar")
   {$:myvar} is the syntax to refer to th ePTV in a wiki page.
