Maarten, I think Benjamin will still have a problem with the -syntax varlist- command below because the -cmp- command has multiple equations rather than a varlist. Benjamin can use -syntax anything(equaok)- instead of -syntax varlist- to solve that problem. Then the program would look like program escalate, eclass version 12.1 syntax anything(equaok) [if] [in] [fw pw aw iw] [, *] cmp `anything' `if' `in' `weigth' `exp', `options' tempname newb newV matrix `newb' = e(b) matrix `newV' = e(V) ... code to change newb and newV ... ereturn post `newb' `newV' ... end John On Oct 19, 2012, at 12:36 AM, Maarten Buis <maartenlbuis@gmail.com> wrote: > Nothing changes, except for the part ... code to change newb and newV > ... but that was the part you had to fill in anyhow. > > -- Maarten > > On Thu, Oct 18, 2012 at 8:33 PM, Benjamin Villena <b_villena@yahoo.com> wrote: >> Dear John (or anyone else who knows the answer) >> The example you gave is great, but I am using a multiequation estimation command called cmp (Roodman 2012) >> How can I adapt your example if I have to estimate this multiequation model with cmp using standardized regressors ? >> >> cmp (y1= x1-x10 z) (y2 = x1-x10 z) (y3= x1-x10 z) (y4= x1-x10 z) (y5= x1-x10 w) if ss=1, `options' >> >> In other words, how can I write the 'syntax' line of my new program to be able to invoke cmp with the right syntax within the new ado file? >> >> Thanks, >> >> >> ----- Original Message ----- >>> From: John Luke Gallup <jlgallup@pdx.edu> >>> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu >>> Cc: >>> Sent: Wednesday, October 17, 2012 6:44 PM >>> Subject: Re: st: how to escalate coefficients using outreg2 or a similar program? >>> >>> -outreg2- (and -outreg-) take all their information about the coefficients >>> directly from the e(b) and e(V) matrices, so you _have_ to modify these matrices >>> if you want to report non-standard estimates.
