Your version of -outreg- is choking because the space 
before the HD, which to the Macintosh is an integral 
part of the filename, is being misunderstood. 
This problem has been noticed before and -outreg- fixed 
for at least one instance of it. 

. which outreg 

will tell you what you have and 

. ssc desc outreg 

reveals that the latest version is 3.1.7. 
If you are not using the latest version, 
upgrade first.
