Re: st: suppressing header information in eststo/esttab

I don't think there's a way in -esttab- or -estout- to write just the
body of the table to file. (Also, list posters should add where to
obtain user-written packages; -estout- is available from SSC).

I would write the table to file with the header, then omit the table
header on import using the -VerbatimInput- command from the -fancyvrb-
package. Something like this in LaTeX:

\usepackage{fancyvrb}

    \begin{table}
        \centering
        \caption{Example.} \label{tab:example}
        \input{esttab_output_with_header.tex}
        \VerbatimInput[firstline=4, lastline=10]{esttab_output_for_middle.txt}
        \input{esttab_output_with_footer.tex}
    \end{table}

HTH.
