Fellow listers, I am trying to learn to write Latex files from Stata/Mata with the file commands and have a couple of questions: 1. What is the difference between using simple quotes " xxx " compared with `" xxx "' type quotes? The user manual displays simple quotes for write commands file write handle "first part is" while in the Gini/Pasquini' Automatic Generation of Document article from Stata Journal vol 6 number 1, the typical example uses a format like, file write handle `"first part is"' I would like to know how they are treated differently, if at all. 2. A more complicated question. How does one use a $ sign in a file write command and not have Stata treat it as a global macro? For instance, the end of the following command: file write tex "\begin{tabular}{lrrrrrrrrrrr}\hline\\ \scriptsize Model & `: word 1 of `:colname e(b)'' & p-val & " file write tex "`: word 2 of `:colname e(b)'' & p-val & `: word 3 of `:colname e(b)'' & p-val & `: word 4 of `:colname e(b)'' & " file write tex "p-val & `: word 5 of `:colname e(b)'' & p-val & adj. $R^2$ \\" _n file write tex "\vspace{0.05in}" _n generates: \begin{tabular}{lrrrrrrrrrrr}\hline\\ \scriptsize Model & FFMkt & p-val & SMB & p-val & HML & p-val & UMD & p-val & _cons & p-val & adj. ^2$ \\ and I end up with ^2$ as opposed to the $R^2$ term I need for a Latex math string. I also tried `=char(35)'R^2$ without any change in results. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
