Dear all,
I have recently discovered the sppack command by Drukker et al. (2012)
about spatial econometrics. I have used sppack to create a weighting
matrix (it doesn't matter what type - the problem presents with
contiguity, inverse distance, normalized, banded or not...), say W, and
I wanted to use W with the Pisati's spatgsa  to compute Moran's I for my
Unfortunately, once I run "spatgsa varname , weights(W) moran"
I receive the following error message
Matrix W does not exist.
I suppose spatgsa doesn't recognize matrix created with sppack. Is there
anyway to create a weighting matrix with sppack and to perform Moran's I
(but also Geary's C and so on)?
