I went back and looked at your enduser document but must admit I don't see anything there that is useful to me. It doesn't look to me that I can use -listtex- to produce the tables I'm used to (basically the ones produced by outtex) where you get the significance mark next to the estimate and the standard errors in parenthesis below.

If I'm missing anything obvious, let me know.
You should be able to produce tables like you are used to by using -parmest- and -dsconcat-, followed by -tostring- to convert the estimates and SEs to string, followed by -replace- to add the parentheses to the SEs and the significance marks to the estimates, followed by -reshape, long- to put the parenthesised SEs below the estimates. The resulting resultsset can then be output using -listtex-. However, I myself have never done this, because, in the medical sector, most people prefer estimates with confidence limits, possibly followed by left-justified P-values to 2 significant figures (Stata format %-8.2g) if there is enough space.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes
