My sample size is even lower than a hundred. I forgot to say that I am
suppressing constant (i.e. homogeneity reasons) and I know that this is why
it gives high F values (because by normal regression, everything is fine)
but I am not quite sure how this noconstant fn comes up with large F values.
I would appreciate another hint. Thanks again.

  Dear Statalist,

  I'm kinda alarmed to see F values that are so high (reaches 38,000). Is
there anything wrong. I thought it's too good to be true. Thanks.

If the sample size is 100, you may be on to something pretty cosmic. If it
is 100,000 it may not mean much. It is hard to tell just based on the info
you have given.
