<> You could script something to automatically write the varlabels() option of -estout- for you. The example below shows you some ways to do this (it assumes (1) you have properly labeled all your variables _and_ values, and (2) you use the first level of all your categorical vars as the base level) and runs 3 models, changing the varlabels() option each time accordingly. You'd have to do some adapting to your code/data. ********************! watch for wrapping below: clear* sysuse auto, clear **clean up value and variable labels first lab def r 0 "zero" 1 "one" 2 "two" 3 "three" 4 "four" 5 "five" lab val rep78 r //all your factor vars must have value labels **set up models in macros loc iv1 trunk price i.rep78 mpg loc iv2 i.rep78 headr loc iv3 headr mpg i.rep78 trunk turn displacement **base level /*set macro for your base level (assumes same base for all models for simplicity below)*/ loc base = 1 **CREATE ESTOUT FOR ALL YOUR MODELS** forval m = 1/3 { //these are you 3 models loc lab "" **1. make a macro for the varlabels option of estout: foreach v in `iv`m'' { if strpos("`v'", "i.")>0 { //this is for factorvars **this prevents locals from writing on top of itsself from prev. loop loc use "" loc uselab "" loc use = subinstr("`v'", "i.", "", 1) loc uselab `" `:value label `use'' "' levelsof `use', loc(i) foreach j in `i' { //this loops over categorical var levels loc fl "" if `"`base'"' == `"`j'"' loc fl "b" **note: you could make this last line change the base by variable type/name/some other attribute loc lab `"`lab' `j'`fl'.`use' "`: label `uselab' `j'' " "' } //end of j.loop } //end of if *this is for non-factor vars: if strpos("`v'", "i.")<1 { loc lab `"`lab' `v' "`:var lab `v''" "' } } //end of v.loop di `"`lab'"' //check your varlabel() option macro here ** run model quietly regress price `iv`m'' est sto m`m' ** estout estout m`m' using "mymodels`m'.xls", /// replace label /// varlabels(`lab' _cons Intercept) } //end of m.loop ***********! - Eric __ Eric A.
