After estimations type -eret list- and you'll, among others, see e(r2) to which you can refer as a local macro (`e(r2)')

In a graph you may do something like that:
--
sysuse auto
reg mpg weight
local r2 : di %6.0gc e(r2)
twoway (scatter mpg weight), ///
caption("R-Square is `r2'", ///
position(2) ring(0) size(large) ///
box bcolor(ltbluishgray))
--

I find myself wanting to include the values of saved results, such as R-squared in the
titles, notes, text etc for various plots that I want to do. I can't seem to find a discussion in the manuals
or in the Mitchell book of how to do this. I know its possible, but I wonder if someone
can direct me to a compact discussion.
