I am reminded obliquely of one users' meeting in which Bill Gould as StataCorp President underlined that there often comes a point where other software is better suited to doing what people are asking to be possible in Stata. "After all", he said, "you wouldn't expect Stata to include a complete integrated word processor, would you?" "Great idea." "Yes please!" "When we can expect it?" was the flavour of the response. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Stas Kolenikov You should expect -esttab- to produce the output that you would later \input{} into your main LaTeX file, which you can customize in any way you would like. In the version of -esttab- that I have, there's option -page(packages)- that allows one to add packages to the preamble. But with all due respect to Ben Jann, I am not expecting him to write the whole paper for me within -esttab- ;).
