-heckman- asks you for the selection equation. This may or may not
contain the dummy you refer to. If you whish to include that dummy, you
must use the second syntax shown in -help heckman- (otherwise -heckman-
will fail). This dummy does not need to be specified, but there may be
situation where it might be practical. However, it has nothing to do
with Seema's question, as I explained in my previous posts.
