But really Michael, I am not sure whether this is the answer to the
question. Ali seems to be quite happy with his regression, he just wants it
displayed properly. 

So the -sum- option gives him an "unweighted" summary. But Ali, from the
fact that the # of obs is reduced to 69, b/c of 5 missings in "rep78", you
can infer that the weights are indeed respected in the output:

sysuse auto, clear
reg price weight length [iw=rep78]
outreg2 using myfile, replace sum

Dear Ali

   First off, you will want to determine the "kind" of weight that you have.
You can see

   which talks about the different kinds of weights.

   Say that you determine that your weights are -pweights- and your weight
variable is 
named -wt-. You can use such weights in an OLS regression like this...

. regress y x1 x2 x3 [pw=wt]

I hope this helps,
