I follow gmm help like "";; In my moment 
evaluator program, I do not specify names of parameter, just use  at[1,1], like:

program gmm_ivreg

version 11

syntax varlist [if] , at(name) rhs(varlist) depvar(varlist)

tempvar m
quietly gen double `m' = 0 `if'
local i 1
foreach var of varlist `rhs' {
quietly replace `m' = `m' + `var'*`at'[1,`i'] `if'
local `++i'
quietly replace `m' = `m' + `at'[1,`i'] `if'    // constant

quietly replace `varlist' = `depvar' - `m' `if'


Could you find something wrong if I put two alike programs for equation 1 and 2

Without seeing *exactly* what you typed, it's difficult to tell what 
went wrong.

Having said that, you get the error message "no parameters in equation 
#" if you specify a moment equation that does not have any parameters in 
it.  Perhaps you forgot to surround the name of your parameter in braces
