Hi Nick:

I thought I'd check out mvsumm & followed the steps.  Things were looking good:

. ssc install mvsumm
checking mvsumm consistency and verifying not already installed...
installing into ~/ado/plus/...
installation complete.

until I thought I'd try the Grunfeld example.


. webuse grunfeld

. mvsumm invest, stat(mean) win(3) gen(inv3yavg) end
mvsumm8 already defined
(error occurred while loading mvsumm.ado)
r(110);


Any ideas on what could be wrong.  I'm on a Apple PowerBook G4 (OS 10.4.3) with an up-to-date version of Stata 9.1

Thanks,

Eric

>> I would like to roll up the past 4 quarters of sales for each company:
