I run this command:

reg3 (normscore l1 b2b age l4a l11a l10) (expshare b2b l1 age normscore l4a)

And obtained this results. Could you please tell me if the Std. Error

found for the expshare variable may invalidate the analysis or create any
robustness problem?

I find it very strange, if expshare is really a fraction, that you get
coefficients on the order of 10^8 on any regressor. Would you try running

ivreg expshare b2b l1 age l4a (normscore = l11a l10), first

and show us what you get from that regression? (you could also use
ivregress 2sls ... , first if you are using Stata 10)

Also, is there a good reason (given definitions of the variables) that the
constant term is dropped in your first equation?

This system is triangular, in that normscore can be estimated with OLS as
it does not contain expshare. You may still want to estimate it with 3SLS,
but something fishy is going on here. See what the single- equation
estimates of your second equation reveal.
