Hi all:

I'm new to Stata and to this email list. I'm a Blind student. I'm interested 
to find out the ways of exporting tables to Microsoft word or excel in a way 
that requires little manual formatting specially formatting that involves a 
use of mouse. The information I've search on the internet regarding tables 
produced by stata and moving them to word has largely suggested that 1 
select the table in the results window, 2 select remove  | from the table 
copy option, 3 paste it to a word processor of choice. Their are two basic 
issues with this approach that do not allow me to follow it. 1 The table can 
only be highlighted using a mouse. 2 The screen reading software that I use 
does not read the contents of the results window,  it works fine with  menus 
and variables window though. Presently I've to  coppy the entire results 
window and paste it into microsoft word. Using this approach tables are not 
at all formatted and I've to coppy and paste after every command to see what 
is its output. Ideally I'd like that their is an option that lets me export 
tables in formatted form, or require little input from a mouse in formatting 
them. By tables I'm refering to all forms of tables from summary statistics 
to regression results. I'm sorry if it is not allowed to mention SPSS here. 
But it does do what I've requested above. I Wish Stata has this facility 
too.

Thanks all,
Faiz.
