Please read the faq for Statalist -- you violated three or more guidelines:

1) You re-used the subject line from a different thread.

2) You kept all of the text from the prior messages (in the old thread) within your email (!), filling up the digest version with lots of extraneous text.

3) You did not show what you typed and why you think the result is wrong / unexpected.

I feel I may even be violating some guideline by guessing at an answer, but it seems obvious that you may need to use parentheses, perhaps even two sets, to make your intent clear to Stata (although you don't show us what you typed, so I can't be sure)

I have a problem where I need to generate a variable that is raised to the power of 1/b2-1 and it seems that stata does not like me to enter it as 1/b2-1, do you have any suggestions?
