Thanks for this: now I've got what I want (see below). I thought it might
have been the -fmt- option, but wasn't sure how to use it properly. Now I
know!

Let me show you with some of my own data:

. estout con lab ldm, stats(F r2_a rmse N) cells("b(star)" b(fmt(%9.2f))

Now that I've shaved off most of the coefficients' digits, this output
looks a lot neater. However, if you left the -fmt- option off and, for
some reason, you wanted to show the coefficients as is, then (to -sysuse
auto-):

looks a lot messier without inserting line breaks in between rows. At
least that's what I think, anyway. However, it's your call. :) Ta.
