st: RE: Issue with -mspredict- after -movestay-
In general, I think it is usually best in
such circumstances to contact authors of
user-written programs directly. I am copying this to them
just in case they are not currently members
Emailing Statalist directly would,
conversely, be a sensible thing to
do when it appears that the authors
have passed away or disappeared;
or if you attempt to contact the authors
and get no response.
In this particular case, as the original
program appeared in the SJ and I think
Renzo has identified a bug, I shall
approach the authors directly myself
to discuss publication of a fix as a
Software Update in a future issue of

the only reason for this line is to make a dataset that is big enough go
beyond the maximum character of the local
. movestay lmo_wage age age2 edu13 edu4 edu5 reg2 reg3 reg4, select(private
=m_s1 job_hold variable1 variable2 variable3 variable4 variable5 variable6)
. mspredict newvar, xb1
You should get the error message "variabl ambiguous abbreviation".
In a previous posting on -movestay-, Nick Cox suggested that the authors of
-movestay- may not be Statalist members. In general what is the best course
of action? Email Statalist or email the authors directly? Or both?
