You have two options with the if statement in almost all stata commands. Note the comma -,- sign:

command xvar yvars , options , if statement
command xvar yvars if statement , options

Thank you.
It surely works in case of a simple regression model.
Do you have a good idea to do the same in case of a 2step regression model such as zip(zero inflated poisson) or zinb(zero inflated negative binominal) where I obtain "if invalid r(198);" from Stata7?

```Dear Statalisters,
I want to classify the sample into two parts accoding to a
dichotomy variable and apply them a same regression model.
For instance, I want to divide the sample into the subsample A
where a dummy takes one and the subsample B where a dummy takes
zero. I do this by generating two new worksheets for subsamples
A&B in MS-Excel, and then run a regression twice in Stata7.
How do I do these procedures using only Stata instead of generating
new worksheets in Excel?

```Is this what you need?

. regress mpg weight if foreign==1
. regress mpg weight if foreign==0
