Hi - I'm trying to run a Heckman selection type of model where the response variable may be ordinal (or even multinomial, though I've not got that far yet).  As a test data set I've used the data set womenwk as in the example given by Sophia Rabe-Hesketh "Multilevel selection models using gllamm"  Stata User Group Meeting, Maastricht, May 2002 - but converting wage into 4 ordered categories.

The problem is that the syntax for the linear predictor in the example specifies "no constant" (as I understand it, this is because the intercepts are already specified by the command eq load: i1 i2.  However the ordinal logit model for the response (and I assume the multinomial one too)  will not permit a "no constant" option.

Any thoughts on how to tweak the linear predictor?

Many thanks
