The answer was rather "Yes, you can" although the answer is admittedly
more complicated than you would like.

I was afraid that the answer might look like this.

For a person well-versed in Stata, this is a 'yes, maybe' answer.  
However, for my colleague, it probably says 'no, you can't'.

Perhaps the kind folks at Statacorp would include an option to  
control the format of the numbers displayed by -addlabel- to the  
dialogue.
