This is perhaps an oblique answer to your question. One solution to extracting what you want from a matrix is to cycle through the matrix using a -forvalues- loop and matrix subscripting, storing the results as macros, and posting them as you go. Silly example with auto data: ...first set up tempfile, tempname, postfile, etc.... svyset [weight=weight] svytab rep78 foreign, se matrix myV = e(V) matrix myb = e(b) * The number of columns in the matrix will equal * the number of cells in the table local n = colsof(myb) forvalues x = 1/`n' { local df = e(df_r) local N = e(N) local se = sqrt(myV[`x',`x']) local est = myb[1,`x'] post blah blah blah } This example produces a dataset with all of the proportions and standard errors from the -svytab- table.

Is it possible to specify the items as vectors in order to save space and reduce errors? Thanks, David David W. Smith, Ph.D., M.P.H.
