st: missing p-value from t-test |

Dear stata-users, My appologies for a beginner’s question. I’m estimating the following model using OLS: lnROA=alpha + beta(1)*lnW(1) + beta(2)*lnW(2) + beta(3)*lnW(3) + gamma*D + epsilon. Then I calculate an E statistic that equals the sum of beta(1), beta(2), and beta(3). I want to test whether E=0, using a t-test: ttest E==0 One-sample t test ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Variable | Obs Mean Std. Err. Std. Dev. [95% Conf. Interval] ---------+-------------------------------------------------------------------- E_CZE_B | 38 -.0550183 0 0 -.0550183 -.0550183 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ mean = mean(E_CZE_B) t = . Ho: mean = 0 degrees of freedom = 37 Ha: mean < 0 Ha: mean != 0 Ha: mean > 0 Pr(T < t) = . Pr(|T| > |t|) = . Pr(T > t) = . I would like to know why all the p-values are missing here? Is it because E is a fixed value for all observations? If this is the case, how can I test this hypothesis, i.e. E=0? Any help would be very much appreciated.
