I believe you. That is why you didn't get an error message r(2000). As Fernando has explained, you have few data or too many parameters for what you are doing, so Vikram's suggestion is not the answer either way. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk donsaane Thanks Nick , But all my variables are byte, they are not string. Nick Cox Not so: webuse nlswork xtset idcode generate age2 = age^2 xtreg ln_w grade age* <all work fine> . gen badvar = string(_n) . xtreg ln_w grade age* badvar no observations r(2000); Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Vikram Finavker Have you checked the 3 variables which you are adding. If they are string then stata will give you these message. On 9 Nov 2011, at 03:30 AM, donsaane <donsaane@yahoo.fr> wrote: > I am running a fixed effect model.
