Okay, great. Its working. Thanks! I suppose there are other bits of code I could add to get additional test results from the -xtoverid - -robust noisily- options.. I am thinking the endogeneity test for the FE regression. Also, I'd like to get the weak and underidentification instrument tests for the FE and RE robust. Those might take a bit more programming I suppose. Actually, why isn't RE available for xtivreg2?

In the special case of conditional homoskedasticity, it's numerically equivalent to a standard DWH test.
