Dear statalist,

  I have come across two problems with -estimates table- and would
  appreciate any advice.

  The first one involves the varwidth and label options. Varwidth
  works fine as far as widening the first column goes, but the
  variable labels (produced by labels) are truncated. For example,
  setting varwidth to 50 works fine, but the labels are truncated at
  32 characters. I have had a look through the code to see what
  might be causing this, but have not been able to find anything.

  The code beneath my signature illustrates the problem.

  The second problem concerns cutting and pasting the table. The copy
  table option does not seem to place tab characters into the pasted
  table text. it has always worked perfectly fine with other table
  output (eg. tabulate, tabstat) but it does not work with -estimates
  table-. I cannot think of a reason for this, but would appreciate any
  insights.

  Details of my setup are:

  Stata 8.2, born 30 Jan 2004
  Windows 2000 (SP3)
  Pentium with 512 meg of ram

  I'd appreciate any help.

Kind regards,
 Ian
