Thanks for all your input!  The comments about the actual value of more
numbers in the logit give good perspective, because I'm coming from a
neuroimaging background where the huge number of multiple comparisons
makes these digits rather important (p<.0001 often isn't good enough). 
I'll also keep toying with the ereturn and return commands, which might
give me exactly what I was looking for (whether or not it is useful). 
Thanks again,

Elliott



==============================
Hello,

I have a very simple questions:  is it possible to get more detailed
significance values (i.e. more digits beyond 0) in STATA output?
Currently, the logit and pwcorr (with 'sig') commands that I am using only
give '0.000' for strongly significant variables.  However, for coming
publications it would be much more useful to see beyond this limit to
determine if something is significant at, e.g. p<.0004 or p<.00000001.  A
reasonably extensive web search from various sites doesn't yield any
answers.

Thank you for any help!
