Bonnie, I think I have worked out what is going on. -xtivreg2- is a wrapper for -ivreg2/ivreg29/ivreg28-, depending on what you have installed. partial() is an option that was added to -ivreg29-; it exists in -ivreg28- as fwl(). -xtivreg2- passes the partial() option to -ivreg2/ivreg29/ivreg28-, even if it's empty. So either -xtivreg2- should be recoded so that it doesn't do this, or we need a separate -xtivreg28- to work with -ivreg28-. --Mark > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of > Bonnie Wilson > Sent: 23 March 2012 01:05 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: xtivreg2 query > > Thanks for sticking with the puzzle Mark.
