Dear John, that is great news.
I´ve tested a little bit.
It is fast and word table looks good.

A few questions and comments:
1)  for "two or more tables each iteration" what is not very intuitive
(at least being used to outreg2) is the program ignores the using
filename. For example:
sysuse auto, clear
reg mpg foreign
	outreg using table1, merge
reg mpg foreign gear_ratio
	outreg using table1, merge
reg price foreign
	outreg using table2, merge
reg price foreign gear_ratio
	outreg using table2, merge

table 2 output includes the fist 2 regressions. This can be corrected
by specifying the option:
 merge(table1)  in the first two regressions
 merge(table2)  in the 3r and 4th two regressions
however it would be ince to default the merge(tableX), in case it is
left unfilled, to obey the using filename.

2) i´m getting the same error as Eric Booth when creating a "tex" file:
. reg mpg foreign
. outreg using table3,  tex
                BegTex():  3200  conformability error
               FrmtOut():     -  function returned error
                 <istmt>:     -  function returned error
r(3200);

3) can outreg be used for editing regression tables without been
preceded by a regression?
Lets say you only receive the regression outputs but have no access to
the database (due to secrecy constrains for example). Or re-estimating
everything just for re-formatting could take to long.
I imagine that this would require you to receive the underlying mata
matrix (or dta) of the outreg table. Than executing the outreg again
with the desired formatting and some "do not add additional column"
option.
(I´m sorry if this already is implemented. I´ve searched the help file
and statalist but did not find it)

4) Any ideas on how outreg and outreg2 will evolve/coexist? Unlike
outreg2, outreg version 4 does not produce "excel" and "dta" output.
Do you intend to integrate these features?
	
in any case thank you very much for providing this. I´ll keep testing.

Lucas
