# RE: st: Naming Equations in Stata

```Hi again Ian,

I forgot: if x1 is continous then it should be

reg y c.x1#agegroup i.agegroup x2 x3
testparm c.x1#agegroup,equal

Regarding coeflegend, you can just type:

reg, coeflegend

after the regression command, then you'll get the parameter 'names'

HTH, Jesper

Hi Maarten

I am using Stata/SE 11 on a Windows OS. But entering coeflegend gives
me:

. coeflegend
unrecognized command:  coeflegend
r(199);

Am I missing something here?

I am still trying Partho's suggestion of the -suest- command, and will
inform the list if that works out to be a satisfactory solution. In the
mean time, if anyone has any other suggestions, I will be delighted to
hear from you.

Ian

desirable if anyone could advise on how equations are named in Stata, or
what the proper syntax is for the -test- function.

If you have Stata >= 11 you can use the -coeflegend- option to see how
coefficients and their equations are named. If you have an older
version of Stata you can type -matlist e(b)- to display the matrix of
coefficients and at their top the equations and names.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
