'I need to bootstrap a large number of statistics, actually, it is 5 statistics, calculated for the different year-category groups of the data set. Up to now I have no luck in obtaining bootstrap estimates for the number of statistics larger than 4. I use the following program, which works fine for 4 statistics : program define jobflo version 6.0 if "`1'" == "?" { global S_1 "POS_98 NEG_98 POS_99 NEG_99" exit } local i=1998 while `i'<=1999 { summarize pos if year == `i' local bf`i' = r(sum) summarize neg if year == `i' local cd`i' = r(sum) summarize xit if year == `i' local ef`i' = r(sum) local gh`i' = `bf`i' ' / `ef`i'' local jk`i' = `cd`i' '/`ef`i'' local i = `i'+1 } post `1' `gh1998' `jk1998' `gh1999' `jk1999'

You must enclose each argument to be posted in the post command with parentheses,

post `1' (`gh1998') (`jk1998') (`gh1999') (`jk1999')

This is not very well documented (on-line help shows the parens in the syntax doiagram, but the 'typical use' does not show an example of this), but the last time I had a problem with post, this was the solution provided by tech support.
