# Re: st: Getting all independent vars from a set of reg equations

You did not show any of your code, but are presumably doing something like this

indeplist
local x = r(X)

when the latter line should be

indeplist
local x `r(X)'

I don't understand your second question. -drop y*- is perfectly legal.
When you say drop do you mean omit?
