I changed -bar- to -hbar- everywhere in the code, but it threw up error messages, so obviously I was doing something wrong! That said, I was able to add extra bars for extra variables without too much difficulty. That leads to the second question. If you're like me and you're running a model with 50 variables, presumably there's no quick-and-dirty workaround. Third, what if Alex wanted to use beta-weights as opposed to b-scores? Unfortunately, -ereturn list- doesn't leave these behind even if you enter . reg price disp length, beta but, again, maybe there's a workaround here, too. Thanks also to Alex for putting the question.
