The standard errors are not stored in a macro but in a matrix called
r(se), so after -dstdize- you can access them using matrix commands,
for instance -matrix list r(se)-. One of the first steps I do when
dealing with these matrices is to create a new matrix without the
brackets in its name: -matrix se = r(se)-.

Hope this helps,
