-rollreg- is from SSC. Please recall that you are asked to explain
where user-written programs you refer to come from.

-rollreg- itself does not ever issue error 134 so far as I can see.

My guess is this.

guess {

You are running -rollreg-, which in turn runs -tsreport-, which in
turn finds gaps. -tsreport- would use  -tabdisp- for display but you
hit limits on how much it can display.

But -rollreg- does not allow gaps any way. So what you are finding is
that -rollreg- is failing to tell you that you cannot use it because
your dataset triggers a system limit first.

I am not sure if the problem are too many values, or the gaps. I dropped all missing observations (monthly stock prices). However, it is possible that for some cusips the sequence of months has gaps. The reason why I want to conduct rollreg is that I am interested in how the explanatory power of marketpremium changes over time.
