estout test, cells(mean (fmt(3))  sd(par fmt(3))) stats(N) label
There should be no space between "mean" and "(fmt(3))".

Dear Ben,
that works well - thanks a lot!

I would like to ask you one more question - how do I get it to report 3
decimal points? I tried several versions, among them

estout test, cells(mean (fmt(3))  sd(par fmt(3))) stats(N) label
drop(_cons) replace

but I get the error message "option 3 not allowed".

Thanks again for your help - your program is an enourmous time saver.

Best wishes,
Kristin
