st: -outreg- after -ml-. Reply to Matias Barenstein and possible tiny bug to be confirmed |

Dear Matias, -outreg- works for me after -ml- (example below). Possible causes of your problem 1. -outreg- must follow -ml maximize- and NOT -ml model- 2. I believe there may be a small bug for which I would be grateful if there were independent confirmation when the option -append- is specified and the file path contains a blank space e.g. outreg using "C:\My Documents\outreg_and_ml.txt", append bracket se 3aster coefastr addstat("Prob > chi2" , e(p)) Returns invalid 'Documents' Same problem if compounds quotes are used. Strangely enough, it seems to work great when the option -replace- is specified regardless of blanks. As a temporary fix, it does work when there is no blank in the path e.g. outreg using "c:\data\outreg_and_ml.txt", append bracket se 3aster coefastr addstat("Prob > chi2" , e(p)) 3. It might work for my ml and not for yours. I have no idea of what -ml model- you are using. I could not test them all :) . which outreg c:\ado\stbplus\o\outreg.ado *! version 3.0.6 27nov00 by john_gallup@alum.swarthmore.edu (STB-59: sg97.3) . about Intercooled Stata 8.0 for Windows Born 03 Jun 2003 Separately, I want to thank Nick Cox for his canned solution for better lables for dummy variables http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2002-10/msg00036.html His canned solution can be usefully employed in this situation too (provided that you have no interaction effects) Moreover, to complete my answer to Matias, -reformat- works too. Both -reformat- and -outreg- have strength and weaknesses. It is certainly possible to write something that sums the strengths of both, but I think it would be huge work. And now, as promised here is my example of -outreg- that works after -ml maximize- use mydata, clear constraint define 1 var1=1 keep if sex=="male": sex program define mylikelihood version 8.0 args lnf theta1 theta2 * omitted end char _dta[omit] prevalent xi: ml model lf mylikelihood (exbeta: income= var1 i.var2 var3 var4 var5 i.var6 i.var7 var8 and so on) (sigma:), constraints(1) ml check ml search ml maximize, difficult outreg using "c:\data\outreg_and_ml.txt", replace bracket se 3aster coefastr addstat("Prob > chi2" , e(p)) ml graph ml clear program drop mylikelihood use mydata, clear constraint define 1 var1=1 keep if sex=="female": sex program define mylikelihood version 8.0 args lnf theta1 theta2 * omitted end char _dta[omit] prevalent xi: ml model lf mylikelihood (exbeta: income= var1 i.var2 var3 var4 var5 i.var6 i.var7 var8 and so on) (sigma:), constraints(1) ml check ml search ml maximize, difficult outreg using "c:\data\outreg_and_ml.txt", append bracket se 3aster coefastr addstat("Prob > chi2" , e(p)) ml graph ml clear program drop mylikelihood I hope it helps.
