st: question on outreg: rows out of order
Hi - I apologize if this has been answered before
but I am seeing some strange behavior in the way
outreg orders rows.
I have read the section of the outreg help file that
deals with row order and I don't think that
explains what's happening, although perhaps it
does in some subtle way I'm missing.
Anyway, here's what's happening:
I am running a series of regressions with the same
LHS variable (call it y) and looping through a few
different RHS variables (call them x1,...,x9), along
with a bunch of other RHS variables which stay constant
from model to model (call them z).
So each regression is of the form
regress y xi z
where i=1 in the first regression, i=2 in the second, etc.
I'm using outreg with a varlist of xi _only_ to report the
coefficients, std errs, etc. on just x1, x2,..., x9 from
the different specifications in a single table.
Everything works fine except that the
rows of the table are out of order. that is, the table
reports specification 1 in row 1, spec 2 in row 2, then
jumps to spec 9, spec 8,..., spec 3.
(This is kind of hard to explain in words but it should
be pretty clear what I mean from taking a look at one
of the tables:
Here's a snippet of the code I used to generate the table
Everything's labeled correctly and so on, but it just looks
strange and confusing and would be a pain to correct by hand
(i.e. by rearranging the rows in excel).
I have read carefully the section of the outreg help file that
discusses row order but I don't think that explains what is
going on, because the varlist in my outreg command is
just a single variable.
If anyone has some advice on this please share.
If my explanation of the problem needs clarification please
tell me and I will try to do a better job.
