Part I, when I have three groups, I create dummies for group1 and group2
(treating group3 as a base):
My equation is reg y x z group1 group2
I want to calculate: 
predict xb, xb
gen xbb1=xb-_b[group1]*group1-_b[group2]*group2

Part II, when I have 400 groups now
My equation now is: xi: reg y x z
Predict xb, xb
How do I calculate xbb1? Could I write xbb1=xb-b[]* Since
My problem is that I am not able write all of these 400 groups in the

Thank you very much.
