Re: st: svmat to different datasheet
I'd be very interested to know how to transform a matrix into a dataset
within stata. I couldn't figure out how, so I found a home-cooked
solution (feasible only if you have a handful of matrices) which
basically bypasses stata.
I list the matrix in a log file. Then, I open the log file in word,
erase all text except the matrix, and save this as a txt file. I then
open the txt file in Excel, which will recognize the text file is in
columns, and then I have a spreadsheet of my matrix data. I save it as
a tab delimited txt file, then insheet it back into stata. If you find
a way to feed the log file directly into excel, let me know.
once you have a number of excel worksheets, you can merge them into
stata and create a big dataset.
Not fancy, but it works.
