I do not recall that -somersd- (an -eclass-command) produces a matrix result -r(table)-. What program did you use to produce -r(table)-, and how did you do this?

Best wishes

Hi all,

I am using Newson's -somersd- command (from ssc); results, including the
piece I want, are saved in a matrix and I can list that matrix:

. mat list r(table)

      b  .62563699
     se  .00834334
      t  74.986391
pvalue  3.73e-257
     ll  .60924043
     ul  .64203354
     df        452
   crit  1.9652262
  eform          0

My problem comes in attempting to use the [1,1] term (.62563699 here);
for example, I can't seem to list it:

. matrix li r(table)[1,1]
[ invalid name
matrix [1,1] not found

and I can't do what I want to do - add this value to a scalar:

scalar cstat=cstat+r(table)[1,1]
invalid syntax

note that cstat is not the problem as it is defined (as 0) prior to
entering my loop

clearly I am doing something wrong but I have been unable to figure out
what it is or how to fix it
