I have a question.
I want to run couple regressions and save results using -outreg- with
different out file.

the programming I wrote is as following:

******CODE (1)****************
foreach var in var1 var2 var3 var4{

reg  `var'  x1 x2 x3.....
outreg using c:\temp\`var'.out, replace
}
******CODE (1) END here****************

Initially, I hope to save the results (var*.out) in the folder of "C:\temp\"

However, the above command save all results as: temp.out in the C-drive
(i.e. C:\), instead of c:\temp\


So, I use -set trace on- to see what's going on.
Then, I change the above code a littel bit as following:


******CODE (2)****************
foreach var in var1 var2 var3 var4{

reg  `var'  x1 x2 x3.....
outreg using c:\temp\\`var'.out, replace
}
******CODE (2) END here****************


i.e. I put doulbe "\\" between "temp" and "`var'.out"
And then it works
i.e. I finally get results file under c:\temp\, instead of c:\


But, then the problem is that I don't see anything wrong inc the CODE (1)
program.
What under Code(1), the out-file will be saved in "C:\" instead of
"c:\temp"?


Thanks

jt
