Hi all

I am trying to run

. mfp: logit comp i.bmicat age apacheii sex dm admityear  

and I got the following message

factor variables and time-series operators not allowed

if I include my categorical variable without i before the variable, it would be 
considered as continuous. Any idea how to overcome this problem.

Thanks
