st: Cannot initialize matrix to store summed coefficient estimates |

Dear Statalist members, I am trying to write a simple macro that takes a random sub sample of my dataset, run my regression and aggregates the e(B) matrices in a new matrix so I can calculate the average coefficient estimate and the average standard error. However, I am a bit stuck with initializing the matrix that will contain the summed coefficients and summed standard errors. What I have been trying to do looks like this: local define matrix X foreach v of varlist 'varlist' { //create 1 x k matrix with initial values 0.0 matrix X[1, "`v'"]= 0.0 } forvalues i =1/n { preserve generate x =runiform() //some more code to create random sample regress varlist matrix y = e(b) foreach b of e(b) { matrix X[1,`b'] = matrix X[1,`b'] + _b["`b'"] } matrix list X restore } Unfortunately, I don't know how to fix the error that is thrown on row 3 (matrix X[1, "`v'"] = 0.0 Stata exits with a type mismatch error and I have tried a whole range of alternatives but so far nothing works.... I would appreciate any suggestions to get this macro working and I am sure it's quite simple but I have been staring at this for too long :( Best regards, Diederik van Liere * * 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/
