```Hi Richard,

You may get a better answer, but I hope this is enough to get you started.

(1) There are no observations in the data set with time > 1998q3. Set
the number of observations to 220 since you are predicting through
2000 Q4.

webuse friedman2, clear
set obs 220
replace time= tq(1998q3) + _n - 211 if _n > 211
sort time
generate ld_m1 = log(m1 / L.m1)
generate ld_m1_sa = S4.ld_m1
arima ld_m1_sa, ar(1) ma(4) noconstant
predict pred_ld_m1_sa, dynamic(q(1998q4))

Note that if the last line of the above is unchanged and remains as
"predict pred_ld_m1_sa if tin(1998q4, 2000q4), dynamic(q(1998q4))",
then there are 0's for each prediction.

(2) I don't know

best,
Robson Glasscock
