The tests you rune below are not identical. For the regression, the test is an F-test based on the residuals of the one equation regression. It is not a test of granger non-causality. For the vargranger test, the test is a Chi-squared test based on the residuals of both equations of the two equation var system. In the first case, you should have run a var and then tested the coefficients of variable2 in the variable1 equation. Even then you may not get the same results if Stata produces an F-test instead of a Chi-squared test in this case. I have not tried it.

Are these two approaches identical as the Time Series Manuals suggests or is there a theoretical difference between the two? If yes, which one would be preferrable in a single equation framework? Thanks a lot for any help.
