Lina, I cannot reproduce this error. The following example works fine for me in Stata 9 and 10. -which margeff- returns *! Version 2.1.7 (10 March 2008) on my machine. *** example sysuse auto, clear xi: ologit rep78 foreign i.headroom [pweight=price] margeff margeff, dummies(_I*) *** end If this example doesn't work for you, try updating -margeff-. It might be out of date. Also, tell us which version of Stata you are using.
