Hi Statalisters,
I'm using the new # sign notation with factor variables to create
interactions.  I would like to do post model linear combinations with
the lincom command.  Since the level indicator variables are not created
in the dataset (or memory I believe), how do I do linear combinations
after running a model that incorporated an interaction using the # sign
notation (ex. smoker#agegrp)?  I've discovered that I could just change
the base level in order to see different linear combinations but this
requires running new models for each combination I want.  Is this the
best way to do it with the new notation?
