Dear Shige,

Thanks much for your advice. It appears as if Latex is a sort of programme that is not part of stata. I will consider obtaining it for future reference. However, in the search on the web to learn more about what Latex is, I found two additional simple ways to create STATA output in table format (for anyone else who may have the same question):

(1) after running the regression, type
parmest
and save the resulting dataset under another name. This works great! Only problem is that the new dataset contains only the "core" results, eg coefficients, st.errors, etc., but not other results stata may have generated, such as the Wald test, tests for autocorrelation, etc.
Tewodaj doesn't say what version of Stata is being used here. However, -parmest- in Stata 7 and 8 has -escal()-, -emac()- and -evec()- options, which allow the user to save estimation results other than estimates, standard errors, confidence limits and P-values. The Stata 8 version of -parmest- is downloadable from SSC, and the Stata 8, 7, 6 and 5 versions are available on my website (see my signature below), and can be accessed either using a browser or (better) using the Stata -net- command.

I hope this helps.

Roger
