Dear Statalisters:

I am using -estout- (downloadable from SSC)  to report the results of a
tobit regression. In the past, Ben Jann helped me to insert a second
column to display the predicted signs of each variable. In a revised
version of -estout-, Ben Jann has introduced a new feature: -labcol2- to
insert more easily this second column. 

In the command lines below, you will see this option at the end. My
question is the following: what should I do if I want to have an empty
cell in  the second column for a given variable which is not the last

More precisely, in my regression, I want to have predicted signs for the
first 11 variables, then nothing - because the variables are control
variables, then a "?" for the constant. For the moment, I don't know how
to get the "?" for the constant.

Best regards

Herve Stolowy
