Dear Statalisters,



I have a problem creating a function evaluator program. I have
followed step by step the syntax offered in the help files but I keep
getting the following error when trying to estimate my model:

nlweight returned 198

verify that nlweight is a function evaluator program



My program is the following:







capture program drop nlweight

program nlweight



                version 11
