I just realized that -c_local- isn't documented, so you can't find out what it does (though you can probably guess by reading the code). -c_local- is explained in this post: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2005-11/msg00405.html (I think Nick should stay away from the stash of mushrooms he collected in the 70s) Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.

As you are probably using this repeatedly in your do-file it might be useful to create a program at the beginning of your do-file that does this (call it -ab_i-), so in the remainder of your do-file you can refer to -ab_I- whenever you want to do this. This way your do-file will look cleaner and easier to understand (and debug). *------------- begin example ------------- capture program drop ab_I program define ab_I *!version 1.0.0 MLB 13 July 2007 /*get list of all _I vars*/ qui indeplist, local unab all_I : _I* local model_I : list all_I & X /*abbreviate _I vars*/ local min_I : subinstr local model_I "_I" "", all foreach stub of local min_I { gettoken temp : stub, parse("_") local ab "`ab' _I`temp'*" } local ab : list uniq ab c_local ab "`ab'" end sysuse cancer, clear stset studytime, fail(died) gen randcat= ceil(3*uniform()) xi:stcox i.drug age i.randcat ab_I di "`ab'" *--------------- end example ------------- (For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see http://home.fsw.vu.nl/m.buis/stata/exampleFAQ.html ) Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
