Look up "stepwise" in the reference manuals. You control this with the proper use of parentheses, and the option "lockterm1"

Put the X terms you want to keep first, and enclose the group in parens. Add "lockterm1" to the options, and stepwise will keep everything in that first set of parens.

Is it possible to do a stepwise logit where we can state a set of variables

option for that it seems, but maybe there is another command that does have

And is it possible to do a stepwise multinomial logit?

Thanks already, best regards,
