Hi all,
"desmat" under Stata8 does not work as under Stata7. The nice feature of displaying labels of categorical variables disappeared somehow. Maybe someone has a clue how to fix it?!

As far as I can tell, Mr. Grote's question has not previously been answered. I initially ran into the same problem with desmat and Stata 8. The problem was that I was using an out-of-date version of -desmat-.

-net search desmat- does *not* display the most recent version.

-ssc describe desmat- does display the most recent version of desmat.

version 3.1 and after of -desmat- appear to work fine with Stata 8. I run Stata 8.1 on Windows 2K and Windows 98 machines.

I should add that -desmat- is a very helpful program that is capable of building higher order interactions than -xi- or -xi3-, and -desmat- also produces much nicer looking output.
