Subject   st: estout - translating a dollar sign for use in a latex file (Stata 10)

The following code using Ben Jann's wonderful -estout- (SJ) produces a summary statistics table in latex format. The -substitute- option lets me substitute "\%" for the "%" which appears in a variable label. I have not been able to figure out what combination of compound quotes, etc. is necessary to turn a "$" into a "\$". I suspect that Stata reads the dollar sign in the -substitute- option as indicating an empty macro, but neither that suspicion nor a search of the help files or web has turned up a solution.

Thanks,
Devra
