Hi Jesper and all,

Thanks for this. I found the first part of your estpost command
earlier on, although I have been looking for a way to include the
asterisks (level of significance) for the p-values in the output
table. When I run the following command, it gives the asterisks for
the p-values.

estpost ttest mpg, by(foreign)
esttab, wide nonumber

(1) how can I include the asterisks in the rtf file? I tried 'esttab
using test.rtf,c(mu_1 mu_2 t p) rtf wide nonumber label', but it
doesn't work right.
(2) 'esttab, wide nonumber' generates significance levels at 5%, 1%
and 0.01% (* p<0.05, ** p<0.01, *** p<0.001), is there a way to change
it to * p<0.10, ** p<0.05, *** p<0.01?

Thanks in advance.
