In the variables are consecutive, you can try

outreg2 a1-a19 using myfile 

But what you want to do is to "positively" drop a variable. 
This comes up occassionally. It's the syntax that was 
never settled on. If -drop( )- option is added, should 
-keep( )- option be added as well? That seems redundant 
with the current set up.

Unless someone has a better suggestion, I will go ahead 
and ask Kit Baum to upload a new one with -drop- and 
-keep- options added. This should be available next month.
