Jay--

Thank you. Yes, I was referring to right side variables. collin (an add-on .ado) calculates the VIFs as you suggested. But chatter on the internet and perusing other statistical packages suggests there is something theoretically wrong about this. (Beyond me).
But given your opinion, I may try it.
