Actually, I had read that thread before (I always Google for solutions before asking for help), that is why I got to a model that more or less worked. The problem is that I can not get the correct estimate, and I though that I had set everything correctly.

I know that I can use NOMREG (I had also Googled that link you show below), just like I use COXREG (usually I run conditional logistic regression models with COXREG), but I wanted to find out if GENLIN would work. I am preparing some class notes for a regression models statistics course for clinicians, and I wanted to use GENLIN instead of COXREG, because of the chronological sequence of classes: Cox regression comes after logistic regression models, and they are rather, emmm, "linear" people, using COXREG when they don't know what a COX model is would be confusing for them. Besides, I'd rather not create auxiliary variables, like the Pseudotime needed to run the model with COXREG, or the constant needed to run it with NOMREG

Thanks, Marta
