The last version I can see is 3.1.7 13 May 2002. John appears to have dropped off Statalist. Possibly you could modify a copy of -outreg- so that it does what you wish. tempname b mat `b' = e(b) forval j = 1/`= colsof(`b')' { mat `b'[1,`j'] = exp(`b'[1,`j'] - 1) * 100 } <work with `b' rather than e(b) thereafter when appropriate> It is probably more practical, however, to get to grips with what -parmby- can do! (I see that Roger has explained how to do it.)
