It is not clear at all what exactly "did not work" in your case. We
can't know what went wrong if we can't see what you did. Perhaps have
a look at the Statalist FAQ for some good advice on posting.

I don't think there are any problems with -estimates table- in the
context you describe. Consider the following example:

*-------------------------
clear
sysuse auto
forval i=1/5 {
	gen w`i'=runiform()
}
gen obs=_n
svyset obs, brrweight(w*)

svy brr: reg price mpg
est sto m1
svy brr: reg price mpg trunk
est sto m2

estimates table m*, b(%6.1f) se(%6.1f)
*-------------------------

which works just fine.
