Chris,

-estout- fully supports -mfx-. Example:

 . sysuse auto
 . probit foreign mpg weight
 . mfx
 . estout , cells("b p") margin style(fixed)

The 'margin' option causes -estout- to tabulate the marginal effects
instead of the raw coefficients. Statistics such as p-values and 
confidence intervalls will also be based on the mfx-results.

Be sure to save the estimates *after* applying -mfx- if several 
estimates be tabulated, e.g.

 . probit foreign mpg
 . mfx
 . est store m1
 . probit foreign mpg weight
 . mfx
 . est store m2
 . estout m1 m2, cells("b p") margin style(fixed)

Note: An alternative to specifying the 'margin' option is to 
directly tabulate the information added by -mfx-. The command 
below, for example, tabulates the raw probit coefficients and 
the marginal effects:

 . estout , cells("b Xmfx_dydx") style(fixed)


The -margin- command by Tamas Bartus can also be easily used with 
-estout-. Use margin's 'replace' option to save the marginal 
effects as regular estimates and the tabulate them:

 . probit foreign mpg weight
 . margin , replace
 . estout , cells("b p") style(fixed)

Alternatively, if the raw coefficients be preserved, omit the 
'replace' option and, for example, type: 

 . probit foreign mpg weight
 . margin
 . estout , cells("b margin_b") style(fixed)
