Michael, Latex is a typesetting program that you need to have installed on your computer. There are many different ways of installing latex that depend on what operating system you are running. If you're using a Mac, have a look at: http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/ The commands \usepackage{booktabs} and \usepackage{tabularx} go into a .tex file that is read by latex. The .tex file contains your document and the latex instructions for typesetting it. The lines of latex code that Stata generates would go into the same .tex file.

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. -- Best wishes, Michael McCulloch Pine Street Foundation 124 Pine St., San Anselmo, CA 94960-2674 Tel: (415) 407-1357 Fax: (415) 485-1065 mcculloch@pinestreetfoundation.org www.pinestreetfoundation.org * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
