If you checked help xtreg, you would find that :

predict fixeff, u

should generate the fixed effects in variable fixeff.

You could then:

bysort firmid: keep if _n==1
keep firmid fixeff

and that would create a dataset with just the fixed effects for each firmid

Subject: st: Retrieving coefficients using the xtreg command

I'm using Stata8.

I want to run a fixed effects (on firmid) regression using the xtreg command. There are 10000 firms.
I then want to used the fixed effects coefficients as dependent variables in a second regression (see David Card, Alan Krueger, Journal of Political Economy, 1992, for example).

I run the regression:

xtreg expend sales rd advertise, fe i(firmid)

Is there a way to retrieve the fixed effects coefficients for each of the 10000 firms using the xtreg command?

If not, is there a way to use the xi:regress command and force it to omit a particular reference case (firmid==10) in order to get the coefficients?

Is there a different (easier) way to do this?
