st: "Partial" Triple Interaction in Logit Model Not Supported by INTEFF3 |

I have two questions related to INTEFF3: (1) Has a macro been written to accommodate a "partial" triple interaction? I say "partial" because I want to interact a 3-category variable and a binary variable. INTEFF isn't appropriate because my first variable is neither continuous or binary. Looking at the documentation for INTEFF3, all interaction combinations must be present (I'm missing cat2*cat3 and cat2*cat3*dummy because they're both equal to 0). My model is generically "svy: logit y cat2 cat3 dummy cat2*dummy cat3*dummy;" (2) Any suggestions for determining the source of a conformability error? Even though my situation doesn't quite work for INTEFF3, I wanted to investigate it's use for future interaction questions. So, I created meaningful dummies based on the documented syntax (http://fmwww.bc.edu/RePEc/bocode/i/inteff3.html using x1, x2, and x3). I do not have missing data and none of the variables or their interactions are dropped due to collinearity. However, I keep getting a conformability error r(503). I've tried resetting the version as suggested in older posts. Also, I've tried running as logit in case weights aren't supported.
