Hi everybody.  I'm writing a routine that needs the name of the
dependent variable used in the preceding estimation.

Unfortunately, the command, -ivprobit-, doesn't save the name in the
macro e(depvar) when it is called with the -twostep- option.  FYI, the
version I am using is

C:\Stata9\ado\updates\i\ivprobit.ado
*! version 1.1.8  14jul2006

The name of the dependent variable is stored in Stata somewhere, because
-estimates display- can get at it and it appears in the output of
-ivprobit-.  But I can't work out how my code can get at it.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Mark

This is a bug in -ivprobit- that will be fixed in the next adofile update. e(depvar) should be set regardless of whether the "twostep" option was specified.
