If something does not work the way you would expect it to work, it is
always a good idea to consult a) the help file(s), b) the manual, and
c) further material like books and articles etc., probably in that
order. In this case, a simple look at the syntax rules for -estimates
table- in the help file reveals:

estimates table [namelist] [, options]

If this command would take variables as arguments then it would not
say [namelist], but rather [varlist]. It is also stated in the help
file that this [namelist] refers to stored estimation results.
