Hi Quang, These two lines: > - replace `yb0' = ( `y_bo')^(`alpha') if `y_b0'>=0 > = replace __000014 = ( )^(__00000T) if __000018>=0 Tell you that the local macro `y_bo' in the first line is empty (hence the empty parentheses when the macro is evaluated in the second line). I assume you mean `y_b0' instead. As an aside, you could just code generate double `yb0' = (`y_b0')^(`alpha') if `y_b0'>=0 instead of generate double `yb0' = . replace `yb0' = (`y_b0')^(`alpha') if `y_b0'>=0 Same goes for `ya1'.

Here is part of the "trace" that contains the error: - generate double `yb0' = . = generate double __000014 = . - replace `yb0' = ( `y_bo')^(`alpha') if `y_b0'>=0 = replace __000014 = ( )^(__00000T) if __000018>=0 invalid syntax replace `yb1' = ( `y_b1')^(`alpha') if `y_b1'>=0 I double check the code and nothing seems wrong. Do you have any idea? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
