Upon inserting the @ symbol it gives me a error message: nl wqfinalnoseasonfinal3 @ downstreamwaterqualityfoia04, nparameters(90) @ invalid name r(198); Is it because I work with Stata 8.2 version? thanks much for your advise ________________________________________ From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Kit Baum [baum@bc.edu] Sent: Saturday, October 25, 2008 8:09 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: re: problem using predictnl after obtaining non-linear estimates < > The help for -nl- function evaluator programs states that * For function evaluator program version, you must specify parameters(namelist) or nparameters(#), or both. You have not done that. I am surprised that Stata does not generate a syntax error. Furthermore the invocation of -nl- should be nl wqfinalnoseasonfinal2 @ downstreamwaterqualityfoia04 etc. The at sign (@) is not optional. If you specify parameters() or nparameters() properly, then -nl- (like any estimation command) should return e(b) and e(V), which are needed by -predictnl-. See what happens when you follow the syntax specified in -help nl-.
