Roger's advice gives good positive suggestions. A secondary detail remains: Why didn't -outfile- work for Richard? In essence -outfile- requires a varlist, except that without one the entire dataset would be output. Richard's argument e(N) is clearly not a variable name, so is not a varlist. The rather cryptic message does show that -outfile- is trying hard to interpret what Richard writes as a variable name, but it can't turn e(N) into a varlist. Of course, anything you put into a variable first is fair game. In other contexts, -file- is closer to what Richard is seeking. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Roger B. Newson This can be done using the -parmest- and -listtab- packages, both downloadable from SSC. Another possibility is to use the -estout- package, which you can also download from SSC. I would check the on-line help for these packages to see which does what you want.
