Sorry, I try it a second time because I haven't got an answer.

I have written a small program to calculate the

goodness-of-fit-chi2-test after estimating a WLS-regression modell for

tabulated data (GSK-approach). How can I extract the varname from the

e(wexp) container to use it in my program? Typing "dis e(wexp)" I get

only the expression "=varname of weighting variable" but not the

varname itself. I need this to formulate my program gofchi2 mor generally.

Nick Thank you very much for prompt answer. Wolfgang

Nick's strategy to extract the varname from the e(wexp)-container works very fine, but I need for further calculations the content of the variable - its values in a vector of 8 subpopulations. How can I get back form the string expression extracted out of e(wexp), the name of the variable used for weighting, to its vector?

Thank you in advance

Wolfgang
