Dear Margaret:

I thank you for your reply. I tried your solution. However, I have a problem with the first three scalars which do  not show up in the return list. Consequently, when I generate the first three variables (e.g., odds), I only get missing values. Would you have any idea?

Best regards

Herve

Here's a very clunky example of how to get a tab-delimited file of the 
results of tabodds.  Note that if you are doing multiple tabodds 
commands, using "postfile" with scalars would make this a bit more elegant.


webuse bdesop,clear

tabodds case alcohol [fw=freq]

*** Assign the return codes to variables
gen odds=r(odds)

gen lb_odds=r(lb_odds)

gen ub_odds=r(ub_odds)

gen chi2_hom=r(chi2_hom)

gen p_hom=r(p_hom)

gen df_hom=r(df_hom)

gen chi2_tr=r(chi2_tr)

gen p_trend=r(p_trend)

*** Keep only the first observation

keep if _n==1

*** Fix up p-values for readability

replace p_hom=0.0001 if p_hom<.0001

replace p_trend=0.0001 if p_trend<.0001

*** output the results to a tab-delimited file

outsheet odds lb_odds ub_odds chi2_hom p_hom df_hom chi2_tr p_trend 
using test.txt, replace

If you don't need all the variables, just use the ones you need.
