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
