You are  not saying where you got your files from or _exactly_ how you
installed them. Equally I am still just guessing that the problem lies
in your installation because I can't reproduce the error. But exactly
how you did it may be the root of the problem.

What you seem to be missing is code for _CColJoin() which I guess to
be included in

http://www.stata-journal.com/software/sj12-1/sg97_4/l_Cfrmt.mlib

John Gallup, the author of -outreg-, should be able to advise more directly.
