Thanks to Kit Baum, updated version of -xml_tab- is available from SSC

You can download the updated version by typing

.adoupdate xml_tab, update
.ssc install xml_tab, replace

In this version:

- Thanks toVidhan Goyal, a bug was found and fixed: when outputing tstats or p-values instead of SEs -stats()- option was returning empty rows.

- Two new options were added:

- rnames(string): works with matrices and defines row names to be shown in the output. By default, matrix's own row names are taken but if one wants to define a rows with longer text and containing any special symbols, which can't be put in matrix rownames, -rnames- option can be used.

- nobrackets: by default, when -below- option is used, SEs (tstats or p-values) are put in brackets. Using option -nobrackets- removes those.

For those who might not be familiar with -xml_tab- it's a program that saves Stata output into XML file that can be directly opened in MS Excel or
OpenOffice Calc. The program is quite flexible to essentially do everything Excel or Calc can do in terms of formatting of a table, but from within
Stata. The unique feature of -xml_tab- is that the program allows controlling the formatting of the output tables. -xml_tab- can output the results using different fonts, change borders of the output cells, insert rows and columns, etc.

One can combine multiple estimation results saved using -estimates store- and output results next to each other in a single table. Using Excel's
workbook format allows saving tables on different sheets of the same XML file (workbook). This feature can be useful when there's a big number of
output tables generated using loops that need to be collected into a single file.

We would be thankful for any suggestions about the additional options and improvements in -xml_tab-.
