Dear Antonis,
I apologize, i am not a frequent user in stata list, i did not know i
needed to explain where the ado comes from.
thank you very much for your suggestions,  i also thought of the
stepwise initially but then I thought that ice would take care of the
logic in the selection process. It seems it does not.
Now i am running without the sptewise and no problems so far.
best regards,
Fernando
