Thanks for this: this is also very good. I wanted to add Scott Merryman's suggested code from my earlier query: . betacoef . matrix A = r(beta) to this. However, I couldn't work out where this goes so that I could turn your -grreg- into a graphed regression with the beta weights. Alternatively, I added -beta- to the fourth line, but this made no difference to the outcome.
