Radu had problems using -estout- with -oprobit-. -oprobit- is a 
multiple equation command (the cutoff parameters are put into 
separate equations) and -estout- therefore tries to match 
equations by name. Since the dependent variable in Radu's models 
differs, each model will have its own coefficients block in the 
table produced by -estout-. Furthermore, the -keep()- option 
as specified by Radu only keeps coefficients from the first block. 

The solution to the problem is to add -equations(1)- to the 
-estout- command. Thus, Radu's command should read

.  estout ff_* using `mydir'\state_eff_freq.txt, eq(1) ...
