I think you might need to go a long way round and use

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.
