Would Herve be able to extend your proposal to include the number of values and the row and column names that he obviously wants? From his code, it seems that he wants to combine several analyses into one big text file (and have it appropriately labelled)...

Your first question: in a table, I display on the first line the mean
and on the second line, the standard deviation. Traditionnally, in my
field, standard deviations are displayed in parentheses.

This looks like a problem for -estout-. To install -estout- type within
Stata: -ssc install estout-. After that you can run the example below.

*------------ begin example ----------------------
sysuse auto, clear
quietly generate x = uniform()
quietly regress x price weight mpg foreign
estadd mean
estadd sd, nobinary
estout, cells("mean(fmt(2)) sd(par fmt(2))") ///
       mlabels(,none) drop(_cons)
*-------------- end example ----------------------
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see )

Hope this helps,
