No, the values corresponding to the rownames are saved into the matrix values of e(Row). Use a loop to form a local and then use that local as rownames, e.g.: version 10.0 sysuse auto svyset [pw=weight] svy: tab rep78 matrix RNAMES=e(Row) forvalues i=1/`=colsof(RNAMES)' { local rnames `rnames' `=RNAMES[1,`i']' *** in the perfect world Stata would not require the {-} brackets here } matrix PROP=e(b)' *** note that e(b) must be transposed matrix rownames PROP = `rnames' matrix list PROP Best regards, Sergiy Radyakin On Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 10:59 AM, Friedrich Huebler <fhuebler@gmail.com> wrote: > Daniel, > > I am not sure what you mean by "where to put the e(Row) to set the > rownames."
