[Limdep Nlogit List] Heckit model

When you run the probit, it uses all of your observations and you have a
sufficient number to accomplish that estimation.  When you use the
select command it selects only the observations for the variable on the
left-hand-side of the probit that equal one.  This significantly reduces
the number of observations, and in your case, there are not enough
observations to accomplish the estimation.

Dear all

I am trying to run a Heckman selection model. The probit runs well, but
I try to run the linear regression using the 'select' command I get
message 201: SELECT - selection leaves insufficient degrees of freedom".
What is the cause of this?

Best wishes,
