I must precise my question. The problems does not appear in the Stata output (where stars are not displayed) but in the outreg command.

After a linear regression ('regress' command), I type:

outreg using results, replace

without any other precision.

One of the t values of the regression coefficients is 2.02 (I have it in the Stata output).

In the excel file obtained through outreg, this coefficient is not marked with a star (whereas all other significant coefficients are automatically marked with one (0.05 level) or two stars (0.01 level).

Is then a problem with outreg? Or do I misuse outreg?

Best regards and thanks again

Hervé
