st: Dropped values in simultaneous equations

Dear statalist,
Working with one of my samples (that should be very similar to the others,
only changing the country, and not having problems with the others) I
obtained dropped values for this particular situation.
I read on the FAQ this:

Why do estimation commands sometimes drop variables?
Title    Estimation commands and dropped variables
Author  James Hardin, StataCorp
Date  August 1996; minor revision July 2005


When you run a regression (or other estimation command) and the estimation
routine drops a variable, it does so because of a dependency among the
independent variables in the proposed model. You can identify this
dependency by running a regression where you specify the dropped variable
as the dependent variable and the remaining variables as the independent

Is it valid also for simultaneous equations?
What should I do?
Thanks and regards,
Alejandra Molina
