Thanks, Martin, it worked very well.

The only problem is that the -list- output copied to Excel doesn't
look nice. I've sorted it out through transferring the .dta obtained
with parmest to .txt and then reading it in Excel. This takes some
time. I wonder if there is a quicker way to paste the -list- output
(or any other alternative command that tabulates in a similar way)
into Excel.

Best regards,

Angel Rodriguez-Laso
