Remember that we know nothing about your Stata set up, the kind of 
model you are trying to estimate, the data you are using, the error 
messages you get, unless you tell us. How can you expect us to be 
able to give you any sensible advise based on the information you 
have given us? I am not trying to be nasty, I am just trying to
explain to you that we need information to diagnose your problem. 
If you do not give it we cannot help you, not because of some petty 
adherence to the Statalist FAQ, but because of a lack of telepathic 
or extrasensory ability.
