Hi Ricardo,
This is just to say that I get the same error. Perhaps factorvariables are yet supported in full (works fine with -keep(price) ).
Best, Jesper

Hello,

I posted this yesterday and did not received a reply. I am thinking that  this means that either there is no solution or I was not clear.
In case it was the second: how can I limit the output from -outreg- to a single factor variable if I do not use -xi- to create dummies?

Here is my original query: 


How do I refer to a factor variable or level of a variable in -outreg, keep() - without using -xi-?

For example using the auto data:

. sysuse auto,clear
  (1978 Automobile Data)
. 
. regress mpg i.rep78#c.price i.rep78 price
  <output omitted>
. 
. outreg , nosubstat stats(b se ci p) keep( 2.rep78 )
  2: operator invalid
  stata(): 3598 Stata returned error
  KeepDrop(): -function returned error
  MakeSmat(): -function returned error
  CalcStats(): -function returned error
  <istmt>: -function returned error

I  want to output  only the -rep78- variable values without having to use the -xi- prefix.

Thank you in advance,
Ricardo
