I am having a problem in running nlogit.
When I tried to perform nested logit, I got the error message
"__000010 not found".
But I didn't specify any variable by that name.
If you could tell me how I could fix the problem, I would very appreciate it.

The variable "__000010" is a temporary variable, which was created internally either by -nlogit- or by a program called by -nlogit-. Temporary variables are described briefly in the Stata User's Guide under -[U] 21.7.1 Temporary variables-, and described more fully in the Stata Programming Manual under -[P] macro-. (Many Stata users do not have a copy of the Stata Programming Manual, but all Stata users should have a Stata User's Guide, which is shipped with Stata.)

Yukako Ono does not tell us about the exact program which caused this to happen. However, if you know a lot about Stata programming, then you can often find out how and where a program failed by typing, in Stata,

set trace on

before typing the -nlogit- command.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes
