Good morning,

I eventually downloaded svmt2 and it worked like a charm. Sergiy's method is a great way to learn, as you said, the basics - which I need to start learning for Stata.

Thanks,

Walt

Sergiy's code is a good reminder that you can do it yourself from
basics.
This is essentially what -svmat2- (-search- for locations) does over
-svmat-.

Perhaps this is what you were originally planning to do?

//------------------------------------------------------------
clear
matrix A=1

local names : rownames A
gen names=""
forvalues i=1/`: word count `names'' {
replace names=`"`: word `i' of `names''"' in `i'
}

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.
