Dear Maarten and Richard,

Thank you very much for your input. Maarten I know that what you
mentioned is not a personal attack. In fact I appreciate very much the
time and effort you are putting to help others. I am just curious to
know and learn from people like you. and I did learn a lot from the
solutions you provided in the forum.
Richard, I am happy to hear from you. I read a couple of your articles
and I tried to contact you but the email bounced back, that email is
different from the one you are using. in fact today I was reading your
article about oglm. I will try it and see how it goes.

Let me ask my question in simple way: Assuming there is no problem
with functional form and theory. What should I do to check for
heteroskedasticity in probit model?

Again thank you  Maarten and Richard.
