Yes it does. I'll investigate a bit further and try looking at the 
ado file to see where the error is being generated.
On a related note, when I use estread to restore estimates from a 
previous session how do I combine them with estimates from a current 
session that are in eststo dir, say to make a multiple columned table 
of estimates? eststo doesn't appear to see the estimates restored by estread.
