st: RE: obvious error?
The best test here that you and Stata
are speaking the same language is to
. mac li
to see what Stata is holding in local
macros. If you typed, as stated here,
. local x1lsr age age2 hgc
then the local macro -x1lsr- will
hold "age age2 hgc" and it is entirely
possible that the local macro -x1-
is not defined.
But I can't see what is wrong with
your other example.
Stata is not _asking_ for last estimates.
It can't see any variable names, so is
presuming that you are asking for a replay;
but it can't oblige, as it cannot find
the last estimates from that command.
