I am working with the following code

onlytraded : list traded - new
local onlynew : list new - traded

now i would like to export the lists "onlytraded" and "onlynew" to use it in excel (so i need a .txt, .csv, .xls or whatever)..

Has somebody a suggestion how i could do that?

There are several possibilities here, depending upon exactly what you want. For a single list stored in the local macro onlytraded, you can use

    mata: mylist = invtokens(tokens(st_local("onlytraded")), char(10))
    mata: fh = fopen("foo.txt", "w")
    mata: fwrite(fh, mylist)
    mata: fclose(fh)

Not very efficient (i.e., you're tokenizing and then reassembling the list before writing it), but probably functional in most cases.
