Tim Streibel <Tim.Streibel@gmx.de>: So, it's not just different variables, or different models, but a larger set of changed circumstances over which you wish to iterate? I still doubt whether this whole exercise is a good idea, since these results should be obtained from one large regression (or Bayesian exercise), not a series of t-tests assuming independence, and I don't know how you plan to pick an appropriate size of test: see help _mtest for starters. But you can always build your own file from scratch, for the general table-writing problem: sysuse auto, clear file open h using x.doc, replace write file write h "{\rtf1\ansi\deff0 {\fonttbl{\f0\fnil Times New Roman;}}" file write h _n "{\info {\author .}{\company .}{\title .}}" file write h _n "\deflang1033\plain\fs24" file write h _n "{\footer\pard\qc\plain\f0\fs24\chpgn\par}" file write h _n "{" file write h _n "Draft of `c(current_date)' `c(current_time)'{\par}" file write h "{\trowd\trgaph108\trleft-108" file write h "\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\cellx2268" file write h "\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\cellx4284" file write h "\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\cellx6300" file write h "\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\cellx8316" file write h "\pard\intbl\ql {Variable and model}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\qc {Mean}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\qr {t for H0:mean=0}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\ql {Stars}\cell\row}" _n foreach v of var price-turn { qui ttest `v'=0 loc s=cond(r(p)<.05,"*","") loc s="`s'"+cond(r(p)<.01,"*","") loc s="`s'"+cond(r(p)<.001,"*","") di r(mu_1),r(t),r(p) "`s'" file write h "{\trowd\trgaph108\trleft-108" file write h "\cellx2268" file write h "\cellx4284" file write h "\cellx6300" file write h "\cellx8316" file write h "\pard\intbl\ql {`: var lab `v''}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\qc {`: di %7.3g `r(mu_1)''}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\qr {`: di %7.3g `r(t)''}\cell " file write h "\pard\intbl\ql {`s'}\cell\row}" _n } file write h _n "}" _n file write h "{\par}{\par}" _n file write h _n "}" _n _n file write h _n "}" _n file close h !x.doc On Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 9:26 AM, Tim Streibel <Tim.Streibel@gmx.de> wrote: > I am measuring abnormal stock returns, so I have a number of datasets consisting of thousands of abnormal returns (resulting from different models, holding periods etc) and then I am applying a convetional t-test (and also other manually coded tests) to check whether their mean significantly diverges from zero. Now I want to incorporate the means their test statistics and the resulting p-values (in form of stars if possible) into a table reporting these three values for a number of different settings (in e.g. 3 columns and 2-3 panels). So it's always the same variable, which was computed under different assumptions and therefore has different values.
