Mark, Thanks for your reply. Sorry I was unclear. I did apply -xtdata, fe- only to the variables of my regression: xtdata lremmetal lrepmetalg lrecmetalg lrgdp95pcm lrgdp95pcx lbrer btmetal, fe but got the tsset error. I don't have the same problem with -xtreg, fe-, but this command does not allow me to estimate robust or AC standard errors (at least with my 8.2 version). Any further ideas?
