gen double `am'=0.07+(1-0.07)/(1+exp(-`a'))

Dear all,

I did a maximum likelihood and I constrained one parameter to be
between zero and one, in this way:

gen double `am'=1/(1+exp(-`a'))

and then I generated the standard error using the delta method.

Now I want to constrain the parameter to be between 0.07 and 1.

How can I do this?

Thank you very much
