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.

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.
