The program is 9 years old, doesn't have a help file, and is written for Stata 4.0. I can see why that makes it tricky to figure out what the problem is! Too bad that you don't have Stata 9 so you could use Scott Merryman's xtregre2 instead. Even so, you might take a look at the latter to see if it gives you any clues as to what might be wrong.

The main thing that occurs to me is, are the data tsset? You could also -set trace on-, so you see exactly where the error is being generated at.
