Dear Statalist,

I am trying to write and run a program in Stata. The program I define
is as follows and I save it in the do-file

capture program drop fdi
program fdi, rclass
local x " lnvfdi mfdi"
xtprobit expdum 'x', re
gen double x1b1hat, xb
gen double scale = normalden(x1bhat1)
gen double pe1=scale*_b[lnvfdi]
summarize pe1, meanonly
return scalar ape1=r(mean)
drop x1b1hat scale pe1
end

When I type fdi, I get an error invalid file name.

Can anyone please help me?

Thanks
Natasha
