After xtabond, the command "ereturn list" only returns among others the
Sargan test statistic, but not the probability. Is there a way to obtain
this probability as a e(.) result for further processing? What do I have
to include in the xtabond.ado?
Examining xtabond,

di as txt "Sargan test of over-identifying restrictions: ";
di as txt _col(10) "chi2(" as res e(zcols)-e(df_m) as txt ") = "
as res %8.2f e(sargan) _col(35) as txt "Prob > chi2 = "
as res %6.4f chiprob(e(zcols)-e(df_m),e(sargan)) ;

Just do the line

scalar sarganp = chiprob(e(zcols)-e(df_m),e(sargan))

after you run xtabond, and it will save the result as a scalar, which may be used in further calculations.
