Dear All,

I want to estimate a heckman selection model, but I get an error
saying 'Dependent variable never censored because of selection: model
would simplify to OLS regression'.

So I try to do the heckman manually. First I estimate, a probit model
and then calculate the inverse mills ratio. However, when I include
the inverse mills ratio in the second stage which is the OLS, I need
to adjust the standard errors. However, I don't know how to manually
adjust the standard errors for the same. Any help will be highly
