I have access to Stata 9 only when I am in the University, in my laptop I have version 8.Offhand, I can't think of any reason why anyone with Stata 9 would prefer that. Nor, I imagine, would Jeroen if he were to be asked.

You may be thinking of Jeroen Weesie's -matsum-.

Offhand, I can't think of any reason why anyone

with Stata 9 would prefer that. Nor, I imagine,

would Jeroen if he were to be asked.

Both your solutions work fine, thanks a lot. I though there was a non-mata matrix function similar to mata's -sum(C)-Nick Cox . mata : sum_r = (sum(C) - trace(C)) / 2 R.E.
