Daniel, I am not sure what you mean by "where to put the e(Row) to set the rownames." Could you be more specific? To extract the rownames use this command: . local lclname : rownames e(Row) . di "`lclname'" See -help extended_fcn-. You would benefit from reading the entries related to matrices in the Programming manual.
