st: Tabout tutorial: Learning Latex, using Stata 9.2 in Leopard |

Hello,

I am working on reproducing the sample tables in the excellent tutorial file tabout_tutorial.pdf. My questions are:

1. Where should the files called top.tex and bottom.tex be saved?

2. The tutorial file says that " to reproduce the LATEX tables in this tutorial you will also need the following lines in your document preamble:

\usepackage{booktabs}

\usepackage{tabularx} "

What document does that instruction refer to?

3. Could anyone recommend a good tutorial filed in learning Latex?

4. Is Latex run within Stata, or as a stand-alone program?

5. After issuing a Stata command such as this below (copied from the -tabout- tutorial), a series of lines of Latex code are created. What do I do with those?

tabout foreign rep78 using table11latex.txt, replace ///

c(mean mpg mean weight mean length median price median headroom) ///

f(1c 1c 1c 2cm 1c) ///

clab(MPG Weight_(lbs) Length_(in) Price Headroom_(in)) ///

sum npos(tufte) style(tex) bt cl2(2-4 5-6) cltr2(.75em 1.5em) ///

topstr(10cm) botstr(auto.dta)

Thank you.
