Can anyone explain why I get the following error?  How can I access
the elements of the matrix which generates the error?
Thanks,

Steve

Program:
/************************************/
webuse nhanes2, clear
svyset
svy : mean height
ereturn list
matrix list e(V_srs)
di el(e(V_srs),1,1)   //OKAY

matrix list e(b)
di el(e(b),1,1)      //GENERATES ERROR
/*************************************/
change the last line to

matrix bmat = e(b)
di el(bmat,1,1)

I'm not sure why you get an error but I generally find it is easier to make a copy of e(b) and to work with it.
