Hello Statalist users, 

I have Stata 11.2 and downloaded -mvprobit- command for analysis. My
model for the -mvprobit- command is:

mvprobit (SM1=)(SM2= affiloui1 filialOUparticipOUI1 apeIAA1 fboisson1
fcerealalimanim1 ffruitsleg1 fviande1 fAUTRES1 lnadha1 lnrpr311)(SM3=
MCAautres1 MCAnon1 MCAgros1 MCApart1 MCAgdist1 lnpmonde1 lnpunion1
CAregmoins501 ef501 lnrpr311)

and this shows me the results for the model (omitted) and for 

/atrho21       -.9462691
/atrho31        -.1293586
/atrho32        -.3407803
rho21           -.7380893
rho31           -.1286418
rho32           -.3281738

I am interested in changing any of the /atrho value to 1. Is it possible
in Stata 11.2?

-mvprobit- is on SSC.

Your question is not clear, but it appears that you wish to constrain
some of the cross-equation correlations to specific values. Linear
constraints on /atrho values (equivalently, correlations) can be imposed
using -constraint-.
