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.

Subject: 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.
