I don't really use Excel (other than to save data I've been sent to CSV for importing into Stata) or use M$-Windows, but I suspect that because of the proprietary nature of the Excel file format that -logout- is actually writing CSV files and files with the .csv extension are (generally) associated with the Excel program on most M$ machines. If you _really_ want to do this (-collapse- and -statsby- will likely get you there quicker though), then you can write lots of individual files (with a slight tweaking of your code) and then concatenate them into one large file. You can even do this from within Stata by making a shell call. >> >> forv i=0/5 { >> foreach y in male singlet{ >> forv s=0/1{ >> di "myga==`i' & `y'==`s'" >> qui su bwtg if myga==`i' & intab1==1 & admit_ic==1 & bwtg<. & `y' >> if r(N)!=0{ >> logout, save("C:\data\do_files\mytab_`i'_`y'_`s'.txt") excel replace: tabstat >> bwtg if myga==`i' & intab1==1 & admit_ic==1 & bwtg<., stat(n mean >> median p25 p75 min max ) by(`y') col(stat) f(%9.0g) notot nosep >> >> } >> } >> } >> } * Note that I've modified the above code so that each call to -logout- is writing the results to an individual file based on levels of i, y and s * Under a UNIX-like system the command to use is 'cat' and whilst you'd never have a "c:\" path the call would be !cat c:/data/do_files/mytab_* > c:/data/do_files/mytab.txt * Under M$-Windows you need to use the DOS Copy command (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69575) !COPY c:/data/do_files/mytab_* c:/data/do_files/mytab.txt Should do the trick, but as Nick says what is it that you can't do in Stata?
