st: how to program an equivalent of "egen mean" for an equation |

I am trying to program a non linear least square function using panel data. I have to create a sort of "within estimator" by having the estimation routine compute the average of the function for each value of the parameters, and such average needs to be plugged back in the original function in the following fashion: x_st-(mean)x_st=f(beta, gamma) - value_f((mean)beta,(mean)gamma) where s=market, t=time. While x_st-(mean)x_st is observed and I can compute it, I don't know how to implement the mean of the function in the routine, because I need to compute it for each estimated value of the parameters, but also for each individual (market) of the dataset, over time. I have tried this way, but obviously it does not work: program nlfrncs version 12.1 if "`1'" == "?" { global S_1 "w b_ns b_s g2_ns g2_s g3_ns g3_s" global w=0 global b_ns=-1 global b_s=-2 global g2_ns=0.5 global g2_s=0.5 global g3_ns=0.5 global g3_s=0.5 tempvar Y quietly { by market, sort: egen`Y'=mean(ln($w*exp($b_ns*price1+$g2_ns*price2+$g3_ns*price3)+(1-$w)*(y*exp($b_s*price1+$g2_s*price2+$g3_s*price3)+i*exp($b_s*price1+$g2_s*f_price2+$g3_s*f_price3)))) , replace } exit } replace `1'=ln($w*exp($b_ns*price1+$g2_ns*price2+$g3_ns*price3)+(1-$w)*(y*exp($b_s*price1+$g2_s*price2+$g3_s*price3)+i*exp($b_s*price1+$g2_s*f_price2+$g3_s*f_price3)))-`Y' end I get the error: unrecognized command: egen__00000F Any suggestion or direction will be greatly appreciated.
