Dear Anees,

Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it that you keep
helping me. It is very important for me since I am writing  my
masterthesis and I completed the whole thesis, except for this last
granger causality test. Furthermore the deadline is almost there, so I
am a little bit stressed at the moment. So thanks a lot for all the
help!

I followed all your tips, but I still did not succeed in completing
the test. I added all the new variales.
However, I do not think the problem was with the lags. Even when I
only use the following command after the vec model:
test (d.lexr=0)
I get an error with: regressor d.lexr not found.

Are you sure you can do granger causality test with a VEC model in
Stata? I have the feeling that it is not possible to use the command
function test after creating a VEC model.

Thanks in advance!
