Bianca,

Have you tried reading the help file for -estpost-? 

qui{
clear
set obs 10000
g gender=1 in 1/500
replace gender=0 if gender!=1
g age=runiform()
g education=runiform()
}
estpost sum gender age education, det
esttab . using myfile.tex, cells("count mean sd min max") noobs page
!texify -p -c -b --run-viewer myfile.tex

The only issue I ran into was with the bash command:

/bin/bash: texify: command not found

However, the LaTeX document was created, and is appended below. As stated in the Statalist FAQ, you are asked to send exactly what you typed and exactly what the response from Stata was. Do you have (La)TeX installed on your system? Are you issuing the system command with the correct syntax for your operating system?
