Re: st: Wrapping long variable labels with esttab

Sorry, I should have been more specific.  I am sending a summary
statistics table to LaTeX as follows:

estpost (vars), stats(...) columns(stats)
esttab using "tex/Tabstat1.tex", varwidth(20) wrap cells(" ... ")
label nomtitles noobs nonum title("Summary Statistics") replace

This does not wrap the variable labels, which run off the end of the
page.  I understand that this is because there is no "white space
available beneath the labels," which estout requires.  Is there not a
way to simply wrap variable labels, forcing the creation of white
space between rows of summary statistics?

Thanks,
Dorothy
