I was working with a do.file.  I ran all the regressions and saved the

tried many times in vain.
As a general tip, it's often possible to tidy a do-file by using - foreach- to run a whole bunch of similar analyses. You can do something like this:

sysuse auto

foreach var of varlist price mpg headroom - length {
di "========================================"
di "Univariate logistic regression for `var'"
di "========================================"
logistic foreign `var'

This adds a little header above each piece of output, making it easier to read.

I find that when I finish an analysis I frequently rewrite the do-file like this and produce a definitive set of results for reference.
