Kit--
Could we not just ask Gallup <jlgallup@pdx.edu> to withdraw -outreg-
and let -outreg2- become -outreg- on SSC?  It would save all of us a
never-ending stream of messages beginning "I have a problem running
outreg."
We might also address one source of the problem--in Stata, -help ssc-
suggests -ssc install outreg- in its only example of a downloadable
package! Can that imprimatur be switched to -outreg2- or -estout- perhaps?

Although -outreg- has often been one of the most popular packages on
SSC, it is puzzling that it retains its popularity, given that it has
been superseded in terms of work-alike functionality by Roy Wada's -
outreg2-. Wada's package contains a number of fixes for problems in
the original -outreg- code, which has not been updated for many
years. If you are using -outreg-, I would highly recommend that you
take a look at -outreg2- as a well-documented and fully supported
alternative.

If you're not looking for a work-alike to -outreg-, have a look at
Ben Jann's -estout-, which is more powerful (at the cost of some
added complexity).
