Nick,

Most grateful for your insight, your suggestions work beautifully!

Any thoughts on obtaining the test statistics from the user written pgm for further analysis (such as separating significant and insignificant results)?

Again, I am grateful for the assistance available from you and the Statalist in general.

Second -preserve- should be -restore-.
