Check out the part of the matrix documentation regarding subscripting individual elements. In your specific case the matrix is not a scalar, so you would either need to create a series of scalars from individual elements or create macros from those elements. help mata Will provide you with a great deal of information about the mata programming language. Depending on your specific needs, it may be more beneficial to perform your operations in mata using the matrices and not the individual elements. - Billy Sent from my iPhone On Jun 13, 2012, at 6:40, tashi lama <ltashi32@hotmail.com> wrote: > > Thanx a lot.

As well as reading the documentation that Nick recommended, I would also suggest reading the documentation regarding how to use matrices in Stata. What you were commenting about is correct, you saw the dimensions of the matrix that you are interested in.
