Re: st: -tabout- excess space between caption and first line |

Many thanks, Eric. I identified two problems causing extra vertical space thanks to your comments and have fixed the problem. First, having \begin{center} and \end{center} in the table environment was causing some of the extra space as you noted. I am using only \centering in the table as you suggested. Second, I also discovered that the caption package that I'm using was also adding extra vertical space in that table for some reason. I'm using that package to control long captions to split them onto two lines. My fix to eliminate the vertical space is to add \captionsetup{skip=0pt} in the table environment before the caption. 'Skip' is a setting in the caption package that controls the spacing between caption and toprule. Also, for some reason, I was getting the extra spacing only in this table and in none of my others. This table is the only one I where I used -tabout-, whereas the other tables I created using -esttab-. I'm not sure why only this table was affected by the caption package. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
