So I guess I'm wondering why the command"anova y t* " won't work, it gives the error "t ambiguousabbreviation"I created a smaller test dataset with only 3 variables, y, t1991,and t1992 and get the same error, so I don't think it's stemmingfrom the dataset but how anova works.

anova y t*

. anova y t t ambiguous abbreviation r(111); You'll also get that if you have an errant space between the t and *: . anova y t * t ambiguous abbreviation r(111);

list y t* will throw the same error for you? If you want, take your dataset with 3 variables, type the commands keep in 1/3 li anova y t*
