<> Re Michael`s -log- command: This will only work for Stata users who do not customarily keep a log of everything they do, started by the -profile.do-. For the others, you have to add the -name()- option to the -log- command to make this work... HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Michael Hanson Sent: Freitag, 20.

Babak: Martin's suggestion to use -quietly- seems to me to be one half of the solution you seek. The other half is its counterpart, -noisily-: // Begin example quietly { log using quiet_noise.log, text replace sysuse auto noisily: regress price mpg foreign log close } // End example Note that only the results of the -regress- command are displayed, and not the call to the -regress- command itself. Is that something like what you are looking for? Note also that if you look at the file "quiet_noise.log" with a plain text editor, you'll see that it only contains the results of the commands you precede with -noisily:- . This log file might be more useful for you than (say) copying and pasting from the Results window, should you have some post-processing of the output in mind. Using - estout- or a similar command is arguably an even better way to control what you output and how it looks, especially for inclusion in professional documents.
