Dear Statalisters

I have just finished a major update to -tabout- a program for producing
publication quality tables in Stata. This is Version 2 of the program
and requires Stata 9.2.  -tabout- reproduces everything -tabulate- does,
most of what -tabstat- does, and some of what -table- does. The output
can be: tab-delimited, csv, html and tex.

-tabout- is more than just a program to export table results. It's a
complete table-building package. A tutorial, with more than a dozen
examples of different types of tables can be viewed here:
http://ianwatson.com.au/stata/tabout_tutorial.pdf

The major enhancements in Version 2 include:

* survey output: standard errors and confidence intervals
* numerous layout options: alternating columns, alternating rows, column
blocks and row blocks
* additional table statistics (chi2, gamma, Cramer's V, Kendall's tau,
lrchi2)
* additional flexibility in the placement of sample counts (in rows, or
columns or in labels)
* easy formatting of cells (single numbers for decimal points) and new
formats (percentage and currency symbols in cells)
* for LaTeX users, rotation of value labels in headings and lines that
span set columns

Version 2 of -tabout- is not yet lodged with the SSC archives. I would
like to invite listers to beta test this version before I lodge it with
the archives. While this version of -tabout- is very easy to use---it's
actually simpler than the earlier version---the number of permutations
in output is vastly greater, because of all the extra choices and
flexibility in usage. Consequently, having a number of people road test
it makes a lot of sense. It is a complete rewrite of the earlier
version, using Mata, and consequently requires Stata 9.2.

So, if you are interested in beta testing version 2 of -tabout-, you can
obtain the ado file here: http://ianwatson.com.au/stata/tabout.ado

At this stage there is no help file, but the tutorial (mentioned above)
is far more detailed than most help files and will suffice for the present.

If you do decide to beta test -tabout- could you please email me bug
reports, sending both your syntax, errors messages and output. Also
could you please note the build number of the version, visible by
typing: which tabout.


Cheers
Ian
