I'm using Stata9 on mycomputer if that clarifies anything.Well, at least that narrows it down. I no longer have a version ofStata 9 on my machine, so I can't look at this issue further.Perhaps someone with Stata 9 still available (or a better memory of -anova- under version 9) might be able to add something.One workaround would be the following (IIRC, -unab- predated Stata 9): unab t: t* anova y `t' though upgrading, if possible, would clearly be preferable.

Regardless, this isn't due to -anova-, but rather is a function ofhow Stata is parsing the command line.

anova varname [term [/] [term [/] ...]] [if] [in] [weight] [, options] where term is of the form varname[{*||}varname[...]]

In sum, the workaround I gave above is your only option under Stata 9. -- Phil * * 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/
