Hey Tamas,

Thanks a lot....Your program works so more question for you..where does the program save the results after calculation? Can stata export Latex file after running -margin-? If so,how? I tried outtex after that,but it didnt work....

Once again,thanks!

The error message is due to the fact that mfx computes derivatives numerically and
for some reasons the computations broke down.

A possible solution is the use of my program -margin- that is faster than mfx.
