Ben,
thank you very much for your earnest explanation. I understood it now.
An additional doubt is that when I apply the colortbl to the coefficient or some other options
in the -esttab- stata shows an error "_{ invalid name".

For example,

sysuse auto, clear
reg price weight mpg
local colortbl "{\colortbl;\red255\green0\blue0;\red0\green0\blue255;}"
esttab using test.rtf, append title(`colortbl'Table 1: blah)  ///
cells(b "{\cf1 weight}") stats(r2_a,labels(adj-R2 "{\cf1 adj-R2}")) ///
coeflabels(weight "{\cf1 weight}" mpg "{\cf2 mpg}")


Thank you a lot

Best regards,
Rose.

"{\colortbl;...}" means "this is the color table".

"red255\green0\blue0" means mix a RGB color with 255 red, 0 green, and
0 blue (255 is maximum intensity).

colors are specified one after another with a semicolon after each color.

"\cf1" means "pick the first color, "\cf2" means "pick the second color"

BTW: You could also type

coeflabels(weight "\cf1 weight" mpg "\cf2 mpg")

(that is, you can omit the curly braces; however, the curly braces are
needed for the color table).
