Sorry, I didn't make myself very clear (wife shouting at me from bath!). I'm
requesting a table of point estimates and confidence intervals using ci
varlist, binomial. I want the output table to list the variables in the
order I specify them in the varlist but it produces a table in which the
variables appear in alphabetical/ascending order. Hope this is clearer,

Patrick

Not quite sure what you are asking.  But here's a guess: the data are in
some meaningful order before this merging operation, and you would like
the data to be in that order when you are done, notwithstanding the
resorting of the data to make the merge work.

If that's the issue, then add the following lines before and after all
the other code:

	. gen n=_n

	<< sorting and merging here>>

	. sort n
	. drop n

This just indexes the current sort order, then resorts at the end.

Note that if the data were -sort-ed on some other variables to start,
you could just re-sort- on those variables at the end, rather than
creating a new variable.
