Dear Danny,

For getting the estimation results without pressing the space bar all the
time ....type "set more off". Then you will not get any more prompts.

For reading N/A....you'll have to change your variables format. i.e.
whenever a N/A is in any observation for a variable, then Stata reads the
variable as string and I guess strings can't be used in estimation
directly.
This leaves you with one option... change your N/A to "."


HTH,
-Jayesh Kumar

:Hi All
:
:I'm new to Stata so I would appreciate any assistance
:
:1. I was wondering what the command is to stop stata from requiring
:the user to press the space bar when a long regression is estimated.
:ie is it possible just to keep on estimating a series of regression
:without consistent prompts.
:
:2. I have inputed a data file with missing values denoted N/A. It
:seems as though Stata omits each whole observation when there is
:only an N/A in one of the columns. Is there anyway make Stata
:recognise an N/A only when the variable is used in a regression?
