My preference is -XML_TAB- Regards, Sergiy Radyakin On Tue, Dec 16, 2008 at 5:58 PM, Norbert Michel <Norbert.Michel@nicholls.edu> wrote: > Hello all. > > I am using population weights to calculate aggregate figures, which results in fairly large numbers (hundreds of millions). > > I need to sum columns (variable totals for all observations), and I have tried using a few different summary stat commands, but I keep running into the same problem. > > My problem is that STATA is displaying everything (in the tables) in scientific notation; that would be fine, but when I copy and paste into Excel, I lose all of the detail.
