Another solution is to get outreg to save output in a text file, and
when you open up the text file in Excel, make Excel read all the columns
in as "text" rather than the default, which is "General". This is an
option in the second of the small windows that open up when you try to
open a text file in Excel. 

This way the entries get preserved in their original form as text rather
than numbers that Excel tries to interpret.
