Try this:

****
sysuse auto
eststo clear
eststo: quietly regress price mpg foreign
estadd local hasrep "No"
eststo: quietly regress price mpg foreign i.rep78
esttab, indicate("Repair Dummies = *rep78*")
****

I use the -indicate()- option rather than generating a scalar (which I
don't think accepts strings).

Also, depending on which Stata version you use, you can specify repair
indicators on the fly as -i.rep78- without the -xi:- prefix, although
this code still works if you add back the -xi- prefix.
