Thanks to Kit Baum, an updated version of outreg2 has been posted to SSC. This version addresses three issues.

(1) label option has been fixed (brought up earier by Pierre A). label option is a replacement for nolabel option (which wrecked havoc in the past with new users).
(2) alpha option has been added (brought up by Aaron, who also helped test it). By alpha, I mean the statistical test of significance (the cut-off point for p-values). Different disciplines apparently prefer their own symbols and levels of significance. The default has been set such that the following four codes are equivalent:

outreg2 using myfile
outreg2 using myfile, symbol(***, **, *)
outreg2 using myfile, alpha(0.01, 0.05, 0.10)
outreg2 using myfile, symbol(***, **, *) alpha(0.01, 0.05, 0.10)

If more than 3 symbols are specified, then the equal number of alphas must also be specified. The two new options replace 3aster/10pct/signsym troika in the original outreg. If you want your 10pct back, do it like this: symbol(**, *, +)

(3) seeout option/command now works with Stata 8.2. It previously requried 9.0 (due to version differences in egen function). seeout option displays the tabulated regression table in the data browser view, eliminating the need for time-consuming cutting/pasting/importing to see your result.

Please note that outreg2 is not a wrapper for outreg or estimates_table. outreg2 does not necessarily share all their functions.

Thanks,

Roy
