Antwort: RE: st: Inserting Stata output in Beamer presentation

You could also try "shrink" which forces beamer slides to be x-percent
smaller than normal ("a typographic nightmare").
And you can chose a plain (\begin{frame}[plain]) slide without additional
headings which enlarges the space available

latex-code. A lot can be done by using latex's tabularx or tabular*
command and smaller fonts. Another important question is: is your table
too wide or too long? This really makes a difference
given the usual landscape format.
