There are a number of options for adding text to -estout- output.

Probably the best option is to read -man estout- with particular
reference to the "Labelling" section.

You will probably find that as opposed to the -title()- option I
suggested that the -prehead()- or -posthead()- options are of more
use.

sysuse auto
regress price mpg weight
estimates store temp
estout temp using c:\results.txt, cells("b se t p") replace style(tab)
prehead("%This is a test model" "%Where will this line be?")

This gives you two lines, but again prior to the name you saved the
estimates as, and it would be extensible to multiple lines (seperating
lines when using -title()- didn't split them in the output, but does
with -prehead()-).

The best option is to read the online -help estout-.  You may also
find the following page by the author useful
