Nick,

Thanks very much. I now went to matrix extraction and I think know my
problem, now. My estimation result reads only as row. Whatever I want
to extract,, it works when I specify as one row and any number of
columns. What I mean is, it works when I do either of these:

matrix A = b[1, "b1".."b9"]

matrix A = b[1, "a1".."a9"]


but it says conformability error whenever I do

matrix A = b[1..2, "a1".."a9"]


I am thinking I need to restructure my estimation result such that it
is a proper matrix to begin with (with 9 by 9 dimension) and not just
a matrix with one row and several columns.

Thankyou again.

behailu
