-outreg- has many devoted users, and it 
also attracts a fair number of questions, 
some of which can evidently be answered by 
those who also use it, although many appear
to get no response. 

In asking questions about -outreg-
the following points should please be borne in mind, 
subject to correction as always. 
They may help to explain why those questions 
often receive no answers. 

1. The author of the program is no longer
a member of Statalist, nor does he 
appear to be active with Stata. Only 
he, I suspect, could answer many of the 
questions which are posed. 

2. -outreg- is a long and complicated
program, which makes it less likely that even  
Stata programmers can see at a glance 
what might be the answer to a question. 
That of course doesn't rule out careful 
reading of the help. 

3. -outreg- appears to have been last revised
two years ago. That doesn't make it 
obsolete in any sense, but it may mean that 
as Stata changes it will slowly but surely be 
less able to fulfil the expectations that 
many users want to put upon it.
