Dear All

Thanks to Kit Baum an update to -tabout- is now available from SSC archives. For details type: "ssc desc tabout" from inside Stata. To install -tabout- just type "ssc install tabout" or "ssc install, replace" if you already have -tabout- installed.

-tabout- is a complete table-building program which produces publication-ready tables from inside Stata. Users can send their output to text files for inclusion in Word or Excel, or as LaTeX files. 

-tabout- comes with an extensive tutorial with many examples of different types of tables. The tutorial is available from SSC archives by typing: "net get tabout", which also downloads some other auxiliary files, including complete example do files. The tutorial is also available from

The latest version is 2.0.6 and includes a new feature, a sort option, for sorting the values of a oneway table in descending order. (Thanks to Thomas Odeny for this suggestion). The `Tips and Tricks' section of the tutorial now shows how to mimic -tabstat- using -tabout (thanks to David L. Eckles for the core idea behind this). The tutorial also contains Stata code for dealing with the problem of file locking (false `file is already open' messages). There is also a bug fix for multiple panel tables where users may have had variables with entirely missing values. This is now reported to the user and -tabout- exits, whereas before incorrect results were produced (thanks to Richard Fox for alerting me to this).
