Dear Brian,
Thank you very much. I really appreciate your help.
It seems it is working, as I am now getting this: "cannot have fewer observations than parameters". This is because i am using an aggregated panel data with 84 observations while I have 88 parameters in my model. Since I have the same data which is not aggregated, I am going to use that and hope it will work this time.
I will, of course, let you know if there is still a problem.

Best Regards,
Abdul
