st: Displaying a matrix title [was tab-delimited output oftabodds] |

Dear Statalisters: Following your postings to my question on tabodds (and I thank Svend and Margaret), I found a solution based on a mixture of what you suggested and matrices. This solution works and I provide below the command lines. I now have a basic question on the matrix title. I run a loop with three countries. I would like to have the name of the country displayed as the title of each matrix. I read the Stata help and found a partial solution to my problem: matrix list m3, title("`val'") . The title is displayed on the screen within the loop. However, I don't get it in the final matrix which is exported to a tab-delimited file through -mat2txt- (downloadable from ssc). Is there a way to solve this (little) problem? Best regards Herve Stolowy capture erase tabodds.txt foreach val in "GBR" "FRA" "AUS" { count if post_ifrs==0 & small_profit==1 & country=="`val'" & sample_sum==1 scalar N1 = r(N) count if post_ifrs==0 & small_profit==0 & country=="`val'" & sample_sum==1 scalar N2 = r(N) scalar odds=N1/N2 matrix m1 = N1, N2, odds matrix rownames m1 = "Pre IFRS" count if post_ifrs==1 & small_profit==1 & country=="`val'" & sample_sum==1 scalar N3 = r(N) count if post_ifrs==1 & small_profit==0 & country=="`val'" & sample_sum==1 scalar N4 = r(N) scalar odds2=N3/N4 matrix m2 = N3, N4, odds2 matrix rownames m2 = "Post IFRS" matrix m3 = m1\m2 matrix colnames m3 = "Cases (Small profit)" "Controls (Small loss)" Odds matrix list m3, title("`val'") mat2txt, matrix(m3) saving(tabodds) append tabodds small_profit post_ifrs if country=="`val'" & sample_sum==1 matrix m4 = r(chi2_tr), r(p_trend) matrix colnames m4 = Chi2 Pr>chi2 matrix rownames m4 = "Score test for trend of odds" matrix list m4 mat2txt, matrix(m4) saving(tabodds) append } *********************************************************** Professeur/Professor President of the French Accounting Association (AFC) HEC Paris Departement Comptabilite Controle de gestion / Dept of Accounting and Management Control 1, rue de la Liberation 78351 - Jouy-en-Josas France Tel: +33 1 39 67 94 42 - Fax: +33 1 39 67 70 86 mail: stolowy at hec dot fr web: http://www.hec.fr/stolowy * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
