The -estsave- program (also see -eststo-) is a very useful tool to
back-up estimates. However, it does not change the fact that the maximum
number of models in an -estout- table is limited to 20. A work-around
would be to merge groups of models into "multiple-equation" models (note
that this is quite tricky) and then tabulate up to twenty merged models
using the -unstack- option.
In my opinion, a better strategy would be to ask Stata Corp. to change
the 20 stored estimates limit. I cannot see any reason for such a low
limit. Why not set the limit to the number of "free" variables (i.e. in
Intercooled Stata 2047 minus the number of existing variables in the
