I am 100% sure that it is a classical problem of inaccessibility of elements of e() matrix. Together with quotes, macros and gettoken/parse this is the most common obstacle. Stata does not understand: matrix B=e(V)[2,3] Stata does understand: matrix A=e(V) matrix B=A[2,3] I.e. you need a temporary matrix. Think of e() as a function, and functions do not have indices, even if the results they return are matrices.
