Both Ricard and David thanks for your quick reply. I'm looking into estout right now. It's a bit more complicated, but it can do a lot more than outreg and most important is still maintained.

Hi,

I'm a newby in using Stata, but like it very much. A few days ago I tried the outreg package to export my results to Excel. The export of coefficients works fine, but the standard errors turn negative when I use the 'coefastr' option. (The coefastr tag marks the coefficients with significance levels instead of the se's or t-values.)

It is interesting that -outreg- continues to be the #1 downloaded program, even though it hasn't been updated in years and is apparently no longer supported by the author. Since you are a newbie, I suggest you get off on the right track and try -estout- instead. Most people think it is at least as good or better as -outreg- and the author continues to support and update it. I don't know about this particular issue, but my guess is that any problems in -estout- are much more likely to eventually get fixed than any problems that exist in -outreg-.
