I see. Well as I said, to get the scores and analytic standard errors, you'd need to hack the -rreg.ado- code, which is not that difficult. (Everybody does something like that from time to time, believe me :)). Just as with every hacking exercise, copy the official file into myrreg.ado and work with myrreg.ado. -- Stas Kolenikov, also found at http://stas.kolenikov.name Small print: I use this email account for mailing lists only. * * 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/
