Thanks for all these suggestions!! the twoway function plot perfectly works with the probit formulation. But when I try with a biprobit it says: ; is not a twoway plot type r(198); without claryfing the reasons! 2008/7/19 Joao Ricardo F. Lima <jricardofl@gmail.com>: > Arne > > thanks for your answer.
