I can think of two ways of doing that that won't require you to write your own program: *-------------- begin example -------------------- sysuse nlsw88, clear gen lnw = ln(wage) bootstrap m=r(mean), reps(100) : sum lnw, meanonly reg lnw, vce(bootstrap, reps(100)) *---------------- end example -------------------- Anyhow, if you want to write a program to pass on to -bootstrap- then the results should definately not be returned as a variable. So even if I misunderstood your aim, and you need to write a program, then an -egen- function would in all likelihood still be inappropriate for what you want to do. If the example above does not do what you want to do, can you explain again what it is exactly that you want to do? Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
