Hi, all:

When I use truncreg to estimate truncated regression, this error always appear: 
could not calculate numerical derivatives
missing values encountered
r(430);

I tried to begin with very simple model: just use one independent variable, but this error still exists. My database has more than 20k data, this may cause problem to find initial value for the model. I also tried to take a sample from this database(1%), like 200, the model works. But I need to use all my 20k data, is there a better way to estimate truncated regression?
Thank you all in advance.

-Fiona
