Issa, I have essentially abandoned the margins command and gone back to using the adjust command. I am trying to calculate predicted values so the adjust command is sufficient for my purposes. What it lacks is the ability to support factors (i.e. ## functions) but after several days and no luck, I went the brute force approach and generated all my interactions by manually. If what you wish to accomplish can be done by adjust, I would suggest that you use it instead. I found the STATA help for adjust to be more useful. Otherwise, perhaps other who are more advanced programmers than I can offer you more help.
