A possible tool for doing reproducible research, if your colleagues prefer Microsoft-readable output, is the -rtfutil- package, downloadable from SSC (if you have Stata Version 11) and from my website (if you have Stata Version 10). The -rtfutil- package is intended for use with the -listtab- package, also downloadable from SSC (if you have Stata Version 11) and from my website (if you have Stata Version 10).
I hope this helps.

In principle, it should be straightforward to do this kind of thing in
RTF; see e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Text_Format or try:
sysuse auto, clear
qui reg mpg weight
esttab using `t', rtf
for an example of what the output would look like.
One issue is, when Microsoft changes the RTF standard or the way Word
reads RTF files, they might break whatever you wrote, without warning
or apology, so a programmer would have to stay on top of those kinds

My short answer is No.
My longer answer is that it's difficult to imagine how that would be
done -- and (not least) who would do it. Does Word lend itself to this,
even in principle?
One near approach would seem to be those programs with varying degrees
of support for HTML output. -findit html- finds several.

Thanks for posting this to bring this to our (and my) attention. I
always believe very strongly in using this kind of "weaving" approach
and find it very efficient. Are you (or is anyone on the Statalist)
aware of a tool similar to this that weaves comments, commands, output,
and graphs into a Word document? At my work, we are in constant need of
creating such integrated outputs and the standard format is a Word

I just wanted to remind users about Ben Jann's program "texdoc" as one
solution for combining Stata results and graphs with documentation, in a
"weaving" fashion, similar to R and Sweave. It works well with
relatively simple documents one might produce for a course.
