I wasn't aware that lognormal distributions were defined by a degree
of truncation.

-findit lognormal- would have found for you what there is under that heading.

If truncation is key to your problem, my guess is that you need to
write your own code, but -lognfit- (SSC) might give you some ideas.

I think you'll get much better answers with much more detail about the
underlying problem.
