Re: st: interaction without main effects
typing i.agegrp|durastay (without "i."before durastay) should give
you main effects for durastay plus the interactions with agegrp, but
no main effects for agegroup.
I suppose you read the right thing in help, but got an error by
translating it to your varnames.
