Dear Maarten,

You are definitively right. I will try to present main results in a simplified table. But as I do not want to retype all result in a "manual" table under .tex, I am trying to fix the transfer problem from Stata to Tex.

Thanks again.
Martial

That just means that the table is too big to be meaningful in a presentation. We have all been at presentations where someone presented a 15X5 table and the result was just a grey blur on the screen that nobody could read. Moreover, you don't want your 

audience to try to grasp 75 numbers and their interrelations while you are talking. I would stick to a 2X2 or 3X3 table maximum for a

presentation. Anything requiring more rows or columns should be 

graphed. Alternatively add a footnote saying that there were many other control variables added to your model but that you are not displaying them.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
