Herve,
in the second model refer directly to the e() matrix holding the
marginal effects instead of "b". Example:

sysuse auto, clear
logit foreign price mpg
est sto raw
mfx
est sto mfx

estout raw mfx, cell("b(pat(1 0)) Xmfx_dydx(pat(0 1)) t(pat(0 1))") margin

estout raw mfx, cell("b(pat(1 0) lab(coef)) Xmfx_dydx(pat(0 1)
lab(dydx)) t(pat(0 1))") margin

I am fully satisfied with the content of the output. However, there is a minor detail which I would like to improve. For the raw model, the unique column is entitled "coefficients" and this is fine. However, for the marginal effects, I would prefer to entitle the first column (second column in the output) "dy/dx" rather than "coefficients". Is it possible with the estout syntax?
