```James,
The -esttab- syntax that I sent should give you want: coefficient
estimates & standard errors to 3 significant digits. + for p < 0.1, *
for p< 0.05, ** for p < 0.01, *** for p < 0.001. Did you test the
command? If so & it didn't produce the output that you wanted, what is
missing?

Regards,
Rebecca
