I am trying to create a matrix from a couple of variables.  Let's make
this simple.

I can hand enter

matrix byhand = (1,2)

but if I do

gen x =1
gen y =2
matrix byvar = (x,y)

I get x not found even though display x gives me 1.

What am I missing here and is there a workaround?  Thanks very much.

Sincerely,

Tom
