Marteen something strange is happening. I tried to unistall estout using the command ado uninstall estout, from ("/users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus") Stata then showed that: package estout from http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/e 'ESTOUT': module to make regression tables (package uninstalled) Now I tried to install it again using ssc install estout Now I get a message saying: the following files already exist and are different: /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/_/_eststo.ado /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/estadd.ado /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/estadd.hlp /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/estout.ado /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/estout.hlp /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/eststo.ado /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/eststo.hlp /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/esttab.ado /users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus/e/esttab.hlp no files installed or copied (no action taken) r(602); When I try to unistall it again using the same command as above, it read ado uninstall estout, from ("/users/ridhima/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/stbplus") package not found r(111); What am I doing wrong here?
