Yes, but which -estat- subcommands are supported depends on the
estimation command previously run and those subcommands are not
supported in this case.

Evidently you have a system of equations that you are estimating with
-nlsur-. What precisely were you expecting e.g. the Durbin-Watson
command to work on? This is not my field -- and this is the limit of
my advice -- but I suspect you would need to calculate that explicitly
and also declare your data to be time series.

In each case I get error r(321) 'invalid subcommand'. I know from the Stata reference manual that estat is one the postestimation commands that are available for nlsur. I am using version 10.0. Any idea of what I could do to proceed with my autocorrelation test?
