(NB you may need to increase the 20 above to be as large as your longest variable name) David david@icnarc.org -----Original Message----- From: VISINTAINER PAUL [mailto:PAUL_VISINTAINER@nymc.edu] Sent: 22 November 2004 12:59 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: postfile In the following program, I write the output of several t-tests to a file. Is it possible to post the name of the variable being tested to such a file? When I include ("`var'"), I get the error below. If I post (`var'), I only get a number. tempname out . postfile `out' variable case sd1 n1 control sd2 n2 using outfile, replace . foreach var of varlist igf bp3 { . 2. qui ttest `var', by(case) 3. post `out' ("`var'") (r(mu_2)) (r(sd_2)) (r(N_2)) (r(mu_1)) (r(sd_1)) (r(N_1)) 4. } type mismatch post: above message corresponds to expression 1, variable variable r(109); Any suggestions would be appreciated.
