dear all, 
I'm using STATA 8 for a Principal Component Analysis, as I'm interested in 
building one index out of three covariates (i.e.  I need to get the first 
principal component score). 

What I do is the following: 

I type: pca x1 x2 x3 

and obtain eigenvalues and eigenvector, 
straightafter I type 

predict pc1, score 

 and I get the red message: last estimates not found! 

I have tried several times, also changing the computer...but the red message 
always pops up. 
Thank you in advance for your preciuos help
