Thanks Nick, I have included that approach in my previous message. However, there is a dynamic panel nature to what I am trying to do. Using your variable names below, in my case y = x(t+1) and I have x(t) on the right hand side. I am wondering if you have any insight about what is best: xtabond with y_2 as a function of x(t) or reg3 with the constraint that the coefficient on x(t-1) should be -1 (using the other equations in reg3 to instrument x(t) and x(t-1) with lags)? Thanks a lot!

Any ideas, thoughts would be highly appreciated.
