Your program won't work if only because you have declared -syntax varname- and then expect it to handle a varlist with two variables. The next bug is that you have not defined locals r1, r2, so your r(varname) will presumably contain just a comma. It's always a good idea to include a -version- statement. That said, I am not clear why you get the error message you do. program define myprog, rclass version 8.2 syntax varlist(min=2 max=2) return local varlist `varlist' might be a better start. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk arka roy Thanks so much for the quick response.Now I have run into a new problem.I have svyset the data.For each district in a state I am actually trying to estimate ratios of a no of variables and the corresponding standard errors,no of observations and the design effect and get them into a matrix form so that copy pasting it into an EXCEL worksheet is easier.Here s the program I wrote(this is for a state which has 37 districts): program define myprog,rclass syntax varname return local varname `r1',`r2' matrix define T=J(37,4,0) forvalues i=1(1)37{ use "C:\Documents and Settings\Xp\Desktop\data files\state1.dta",clear keep if district==`i' svy:ratio `r1' `r2' matrix define A`i'=e(b) matrix define B`i'=e(N) matrix define C`i'=e(V) estat effects,deff matrix define D`i'=r(deff) matrix define Z`i'=A`i',B`i',C`i',D`i' matrix T[`i',1]=Z`i' } end myprog var1 var2 Typing myprog var1 var2 yields the following error message in Stata: unrecognized command: var1 var2 I can not figure out what is wrong.Can I not use e( ) and r( ) in the same program? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
