Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -xsvmat- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or use -adoupdate- if you already have a previous version installed.

The -xsvmat- package is described as below on my website. The new version fixes a bug (discovered today), which caused -xsvmat- to fail when the -rowlabels()- option was specified in the absence of other options for adding extra variables to the output dataset.

Best wishes

      xsvmat: Convert a matrix to variables in an output dataset

      xsvmat is an extended version of svmat.  It creates an output
      dataset (or resultsset), with one observation per row of an
      existing matrix, and data on the values of the column entries in
      that row, and, optionally, extra variables specified by the user.
      The output dataset created by xsvmat may be listed to the Stata
      log, or saved to a disk file, or written to the memory (overwriting
      any pre-existing dataset).
