I think the problem will remain too large and diffuse for a generalized solution until stata changes its smcl and tabdisp. This is one area where SAS with its ODS is out in front.

However for my purposes I think a brute force method of just chopping every line with a vertical pipe character into a table row would work in a high enough percentage of cases to save me the cut and pasting. It's almost as much the indignity of it as the labor involved ;-)

Cheers,
Tim

In essence, this problem strikes the authors as too large
and diffuse for it to seem both attractive and soluble by us in
the foreseeable future. There is also more interest among us in
working towards LaTeX-based solutions than in satisfying the
demands of spreadsheet users.

At least that's my impression. Nobody, least of all my co-authors,
need feel constrained by my myopia on this point.

Does anybody have a program to do this?  log2html creates
html files but
does not parse the results into an HTML table.

When I produce a large number of tabs I would like to be able
to dump the
whole thing into a spreadsheet without having to copy as
table and paste
each one.
