Nick and David: Ok, I did -update all- on my stata8. Now I get the same 
results in both versions stata 8 and stata9, showing that my xtabond 
has been updated in Stata8 (Nick, yes I understand your point that the 
update was made by Stata to version 8). What ultimately answered my 
question was the information under "xtabond" when I did -help whatsnew- 
after my updating. This info explains the errors that existed in the 
nonupdated xtabond version.
Thanks all,
tewodaj

---------------------------------------
You've missed David's point. 

To see the latest -xtabond-, you just need to 
-update- your Stata 8. Stata 9 added masses 
of things, but nothing to -xtabond-.
