This uses a procedure -metaregW-. 

The Statalist FAQ advises 

"Say what command(s) you are using. 
If they are not part of official Stata, 
say where they come from: the STB/SJ, SSC, 
or other archives." 

. findit metaregW 

finds nothing, and a Google search seems to find 
nothing much except your own previous references to 
-metaregW- in Statalist postings, so for I all know 
it is your own program. 

In general I suspect the problem is nothing to
do with Stata 9. You must use exactly the same 
names as -metaregW- to pick up its results.  
-return list- after -metaregW- will tell 
you what -metaregW- returns.
