Stata issues return code 199 "unrecognized command: <commandname>" when it
cannot find an command whether it be a built-in Stata routine or a
user-written one.  (Type -search rc 199- for more info.)

In this particular instance, it cannot find bpagan.ado.  I have asked Kit
Baum to see if the varlag template could be rebuilt such that users
downloading varlag would see bpagan.ado being automatically installed when
issuing a -ssc install varlag- call.  In the meantime, type -ssc install
bpagan- as well as -ssc install bgtest-.

In general, when encountering r(199), you may issue -findit <commandname>-
to see if the command may available from the SSC site or other internet
sources.  E.g.

findit bpagan

turns up

I did what you said to do and then ran the data in the help file.
However, when I ran the following command:

varlag investment income consumption, l(8) single corr

this occurred:

Lag length selection statistics - VAR

System variables:    investment income consumption
Exogenous variables:
Sample: 1962q1 to 1982q4                                    (obs = 84)

Equation for investment
-----------------------
Lags vars  RMSE       FPE        SC     P(BP)  P(LM1)  P(LM4)  P(LM21)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
> --
unrecognized command:  bpagan
r(199);

Do you know what is going on?

Thank you for your help.
