st: Hold-out sample prediction in binary probit

Dear STATA users,

The following might sound like a very basic question , to many, but bear with me, as I'm now getting my head round STATA.

I have estimated a binary probit model with firm year observations between 1995-2006 and I would now like to keep 2006 as a hold-out year to validate my model.
I am sure it's easy to exclude 2006 from the sample by following the routine sample specification procedure. However, my question is the following:
Once I estimate the model, is there any way (command-wise) to tell STATA to do the prediction for me rather than do it manually?

Your swift responses will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Eleimon
