Hi,

I'm trying to calculate the determinant of a matrix within a Monte Carlo
simulation program. The matrix takes variables that are calculated in
previous steps in the program.

The specific command I included is:
	matrix H = (0,Fc,Fk,Fl\Fc,Fcc,Fck,Fcl\Fk,Fck,Fkk,Fkl\Fl,Fcl,Fkl,Fll)
	gen detH = det(H)

Fc, Fk, etc are calculated earlier in the program file.

However - I get an error message "Fc not found"

Can anybody help?

Sincerely,
