The error message is a bit confusing in this case. The problem is that
you need to specify the control variables before you can fix them, so
your syntax should be:

ldecomp caco metscat400 lm hij, ///
    direct(Pattern1_Tercil)  ///
    indirect(estudcat)   ///
    at(metscat400 0; lm 1; hij 1)

Hope this helps,
Maarten
