st: RE: Getting outreg2 to output variable labels instead of names? |

The problem is that the label option on outreg2 uses the variable labels for your explanatory variables, not the dependent variable. To change the column heading for the dependent variable you'll need to use the ctitle option. You can pull the variable label into a local macro and do it that way. Something like this: local z "q114_8 q117_b q117_g " foreach k of local z{ local lab : var label `k' reg `k' t panel interaction, robust outreg2 using "D:\...\regressions outreg", label excel ctitle(`lab') } Note that if you want the label as well as rather than instead of you could use the cctop option instead. -Sarah -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Amar Radia Sent: Tuesday, August 10, 2010 3:59 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Getting outreg2 to output variable labels instead of names? Hi there, I'm using Stata 10.1 and trying to use outreg2 to create an excel file with the output of all of my regression outputs. I'm running the same regression with a large number of different dependent variables. However, the variable names are not meaningful, but the labels are, and I want to output these instead of/as well as the names. My code is as follows: local z "q114_8 q117_b q117_g " foreach k of local z{ reg `k' t panel interaction, robust outreg2 using "D:\...\regressions outreg", label excel } q114_8, q117_b and q117_g are my variables (there are actually a lot more but ive just put a few here) However my output in excel appears like this, with the variable names instead of labels: (1) (2) (3) VARIABLES q114_8 q117_b q117_g t 0.00284 -0.0441 -0.0543* (0.0200) (0.0299) (0.0311) panel 0.0520* 54.68*** 52.89*** (0.0282) (1.518) (1.533) interaction -0.000142 -4.547** -5.049** (0.0395) (2.128) (2.147) Constant 0.108*** 0.485*** 0.527*** (0.0148) (0.0214) (0.0223) Observations 4,432 3,912 3,881 R-squared 0.001 0.348 0.332 Any suggestions?
