Subject   st: saving a matrix with rownames

Good morning,

I created a matrix, M, with row names such as Frag300, Frag400, etc. I want to save the matrix as a set of variables so I used svmat, which worked perfectly. But I also want to save the row names as a variable, say rown. I used the following:

local names : rownames M
gen str rown = "`names'"

and got the variable rown, but it's blank. I also used

gen str rown = `names'

but got an error message saying Frag300 not found. How do I save the row names as a variable?

I'm using Stata 10 on a Vista machine.

Thanks,

Walt
