Dear Nick

This is a courtesy message to say thanks for replying to my original message below and that I had made some further headway on discovering that the hard copy documentation I had on my shelf for Stata Version 9.0 is outdated in relation to how to use the mfp command. I have since opted to stick to the pdf documentation provided with Version 12.0.

Best wishes

Margaret

-catzero()- is an _option_ of -mfp- (in my ignorance I tried to find a -catzero- command).

There is guidance on pp.1157-8 of the Stata 12 manuals.

I would welcome examples of the using of the command 'catzero'
specifically to request indicator variables for a subset of the
predictor variables within the context of using both the mfp command and
the sunsidiary logit and xpower commands. I understand the syntax for
using catzero itself (i.e. 'catzero(varlist') but would value seeing an
illustration of how best to place this syntax in relation to the other
commands above.  I also want the mfp procedure to understand that my
caegorical predictor variables are to be left untransformed while also
being included in the model along with the continous variables.
