Christa, Nick pointed to -svmat- as part of the following sequence

	. preserve
	. drop _all
	. svmat <matname>
	. save <filename>
	. restore

The -drop _all- ensures that none of the variables in memory are included in
your eventual 'matrix data', so all you need to do is select a filename that
is different that the name of data file, e.g.

. use "C:\Stata\auto.dta"
. mat A = [ 1, 2 ,3 \ 4, 5, 6 \ 7, 8, 9 ]
. svmat A
. list

            A1         A2         A3
  1.         1          2          3
  2.         4          5          6
  3.         7          8          9
. save mymatrix

Or perhaps I misunderstood the question.

I tried that, but couldn't figure out how to save the matrix as a .dta
file independent from the dataset from which it was derived.
