Against everybody's better judgment, including my own, I am still trying to
do this by brute force. I'm SO close though.
I now have a k x m matrix, where k is the number of independent variables
and m is the number of models I have estimated. Each entry in the matrix is
a 0, 1, 2, or 3 based on how many stars I would like the estimate to carry.
(I built that matrix from a matrix of p-values.)
Now, I would like to read each of these matrix elements into a macro, and
then convert that macro to the appropriate string macro. So, I have...
local indep1M1stars = stars[1,1]
if `indep1M1stars' == 3 local `indep1M1stars' "***"
if `indep1M1stars' == 2 local `indep1M1stars' "**"
if `indep1M1stars' == 1 local `indep1M1stars' "*"
if `indep1M1stars' == 0 local `indep1M1stars'
That works fine. If I enter:
.di "`indep1M1stars'"
I get:
***
Fantastic. BUT...
.file open faketable using filename, write replace
.file write faketable `indep1M1stars'
does NOT write:
***
It still writes:
3
Do I need to reference indep1M1stars differently in the write command than
in the display command?
Thanks for suggestions. This is really vexing me. adam
