Actually Stas's response was quite helpful and directed me to esttab's feature that allows us to do exactly what I want. I wasn't aware of this feature in esttab until now. esttab's -page- option allows me to specify the LaTex package I want to load and esttab creates the code in the Tex output. Thanks, Stas. --- On Wed, 12/7/11, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: > From: Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> > Subject: RE: Re: st: esttab: Can I customize to add another LaTeX package in the output code? > To: "'statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu'" <statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu> > Date: Wednesday, December 7, 2011, 2:22 PM > 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.
