Thanks again to Kit Baum, a new package -parmparse- is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The -parmparse- package is described as below on my website, and parses an input variable containing Stata Version 11+ parameter names, outputting new variables for further processing. It is intended mainly for use in output datasets (or resultssets) produced by the SSC package -parmest-.

Best wishes

      parmparse: Parse a parameter name variable in a parmest resultsset

      parmparse is intended for use in output datasets (or resultssets)
      created by the programs parmest or parmby.  These are part of the
      parmest package, which can be downloaded from SSC, and which
      create output datasets (or resultssets), with one observation per
      estimated parameter of a model fitted to an original dataset.
      parmparse inputs a string variable containing parameter names,
      usually named parm in a parmest resultsset, and outputs one or
      more variables, containing parameter attributes which can be
      inferred from the parameter name.  These attributes include the
      parameter omit status, the parameter type, a list of the variable
      names for the factors and other variables whose effects are
      measured by the parameter, and lists of the corresponding base
      statuses, factor levels, full operator portions, and time series
      operator portions.  These lists can be delimited by a
      user-specified delimiter string, allowing the output list
      variables to be input to the split command for further
