 Dear all,

 Is there any command that I can output tables directly to Excel?
Have you experience with this?
You don't say what kind of tables you want to output. However, if the rows of a table are stored in a dataset (with 1 observation per table row), then Stata can output that dataset using -outsheet- to produce a generic spreadsheet. The first step to a solution might therefore be to output tables to a dataset with 1 observation per table row. Several utilities exist on SSC to do this. For tables of frequencies and percentages, there is the -xcontract- package. For tables of basic summary statistics, there is the -xcollapse- package. For tables of confidence intervals, there is the -parmest- package, whose use (together with other packages) is described in Newson (2003).

I hope this helps.
