I can add to David's post that I have been in discussions about
purchases of software in different statistical organisations and the
issue of producing nicely formatted tables and exporting them to word
and excel has often been brought up as an argument against Stata. I
know that there are different ways to handle this in Stata, but at
least in my opinion this is something that is easier to do in SPSS and
SAS. If there is a wish list for future versions of Stata I think this
is an area that could be improved (maybe with a optional table output
window?) and I think it would help to convince more people to switch
to Stata.

All the best,

I replicate the problem in Stata 10.  I'm using Windows XP and
Microsoft Office 2003.
