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: http://web.mit.edu/guiteras/Public/outreg/OLS_total_trial_outreg.xls Here's a snippet of the code I used to generate the table http://web.mit.edu/guiteras/Public/outreg/trial_outreg.txt ) 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.
