Thank you. When I typed
..mfx compute, predict (outcome)#3)
'there is no outcome #3
there are only 2 categories
r(111)

This was the message I got.
There should be 3 categories.
 When I did a tabulation of the dependent variable
price, I got

 ta price

price     Freq.      Percent     Cum
--------------------------------------
  1       14,309     57.16        57.16
  2        6,693     26.74        83.90
  3        4,030     16.10        100.00
____________________________________________
Total     25,032     1000.00 

Can anyone tell me what preciesely I need to do to
obtain the marginal effects given the above.
Thanks in advance
