Of course, down this road lies some sort of completely generic format syntax.

Somethign like:

%{"("{@*100}3.2f"%)"}

might generate
(32.5%)

for the value 0.325.

And so on.

Then again, Excel's version of this is so complex that I never bothered to figure it out.

*That* might be very useful for coding routines to output formatted tables and the like. But probably not worth the investment by Stata...
