Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -rtfutil- package is now available for download on SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version.

The -rtfutil- package is work in progress, and is defined as below on my website. The new version adds a new module -rtfrstyle-, which inputs a list of variables and/or column widths (in twips) and outputs a -listtex- row style for input to -listtex-, so the user can output RTF tables to a RTF file. A twip is 1/1400 of an inch, or 1/20 of a point, and is the unit of length most commonly used in RTF. And a -listtex- row style is a combination of the -begin()-, -delimiter()-, -end()- and -missnum()- options of -listtex-, and determines whether the user is outputting a TeX, HTML, tab-delimited, RTF or other table.

Best wishes

      rtfutil: Utilities for writing Rich Text Format (RTF) files

      The rtfutil package is a suite of file handling utilities for
      producing Rich Text Format (RTF) files in Stata, possibly
      containing plots and tables.  These RTF files can then be
      opened by Microsoft Word, and possibly by alternative free
      word processors.  The plots can be included by inserting, as
      linked objects, graphics files that might be produced by the
      graph export command in Stata.  The tables can be included by
      using the listtex command, downloadable from SSC, with the
      handle() option.
