No. Stata will take the new values of 0 just as
as the old outlying values.
One way to exclude outliers is by an -if- condition:
regress y x1 x2 x3 if y < 10000
Naturally, there are other approaches to your problem
1. a robust technique. I've found -qreg- very good.
3. -glm- with a nonlinear link (e.g. log).
