Rock on Misha! I was about 10 seconds from hitting "send" on the exact same code snippet that you posted.

If you should want to, instead, save the results to a dataset, you can see

Can I answer my own question?

Here's what I did, but I'm clearly open to better suggestions.

sysuse auto, clear
local regressors mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight
file open myfile using testfile.txt, write replace
foreach var of varlist `regressors' {
	quietly {
		regress price `var'
		}
	file write myfile	%10s "coef `var' "   _column(24) %7.3f (_b[`var']) _n
	file write myfile %10s "t-stat `var' " _column(24) %7.3f
(_b[`var']/_se[`var']) _n
}
file close myfile

Thanks.

Hello, Statalist,

I'd like to know how I can print and append my own "output" to a file.

For example,

sysuse auto, clear
local regressors mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight
foreach var of varlist `regressors' {
        quietly {
                regress price `var'
                }
        display in yellow "coef `var'" _column(24) _b[`var']
        display in white  "t-stat `var'" _column(24) _b[`var']/_se[`var']
}

Rather than displaying these, I want to print what follows -display-
to a file (pardon me if this is the incorrect terminology).

Thanks for your time.

Best,

Misha
