I'll bet you forgot the single quotes:

Hello Steve,
Thanks a lot for your suggestions. I appreciate your time and effort.
Here is an issue:
1. I am using panel data and I found that xtreg is not supported by suest
2. If I use the previous code (as was suggested by you earlier) and create uhatmain as a temporary variable, I get the following error:
****************************************
bootstrap ratio1 =r(ratio1) , reps(100)cluster(hhidpn) idcluster(newhhid) nowarn : my_xtboot
(running my_xtboot on estimation sample)
: variable uhatmain not found
an error occurred when bootstrap executed my_xtboot
****************************************
Best,
Meenakshi

> You are welcome. After re-reading's Maarten's post, I recommend that you use temporary scalars (via -tempname-) and variables throughout the program, not permanent ones. Here the -bootstrap- automatically takes care of the cross-equation correlations. Many people would use -suest- for doing this. There are several advantages: 1) you can debug a complex program before -bootstrapping it; 2) you don't need to create scalars; 3) the equation names and coefficient names are used in the definition of the returned scalars, so there's less possibility of a mix-up.

Maarten's suggestion: use a temporary variable. Or, drop "uhatmain" at the end of the program.

I am using the same code (after modifying it as per panel data needs and multiple ratios needs) given by you, but I have been struggling with this insufficient observations error (otherwise my regressions are running fine without bootstrap).
