# Re: st: Inserting Stata output in Beamer presentation

 From Roger Newson To "statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu" Subject Re: st: Inserting Stata output in Beamer presentation Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 18:18:49 +0100

I personally use the \verbatim or \semiverbatim environments in my Beamer presentations, which frequently contain Stata text output cut and pasted from .log files. A recent example of such a presentation, in .pdf format, given at last year's Stata User Meeting, can be downloaded from my website at
http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/usergp.htm#uk2010


An example, from this presentation, of a Beamer frame containing a \verbatim environment \verbatim environment is as follows:

\begin{frame}[fragile]
\frametitle{Step~2 (continued): Regression results}

The Stata Version~11 \texttt{regress} produces its usual output:

There are 2 intercepts for US and non--US models,

and effects on mileage for repair records other than 5 (the reference level).

An example of a frame containing a \semiverbatim environment is as follows:

We start by inputting the \texttt{auto} data.

Dear all,

I face some serious troubles to insert estimations tables into a Beamer
presentation. Stata tables have been saved using tabout with .tex extension.

Now I try to display such results into a Beamer presentation. But it
doesn’t work ! In fact, the table doesn’t fit at all with the scale of
the document.

Is there a relevant procedure to save Stata results before inserting
them into a Beamer presentation ? (Using tabout is fine for a Latex
(standard) document).

Thanks a lot.

Best,
