How to report logit output to more than 10 decimal place precision?

A SHAZAM User asked:

Do you know how to report logit output to more than 10 decimal place precision?

I tried to fit logit with "Format" specified more than ten decimal place reporting. But the error message is:

"error, less data found than expected, zero used ."

My program is attached herein.

par 1000
file 1 g:\software\data200.txt
sample 1 200
format(A8,F8.8)
read(1) Y X0  X / Format
logit Y X / COEF=beta Stderr=alpha
gen1 B0=Beta(1)
gen1 B1=Beta(2)
format(127X,A8,F8.8)
print B0 B1 alpha / Format

This program is using the A format on the FORMAT statement to READ and WRITE when only the F format should be used for this.

To get more digits - you have the right idea. i.e. save the coefficients, then print with a big format like F(25.15). Numbers are stored internally at either double or quad precision but the default output formatting only displays the first few digits.
