Jeremy,

-outreg- is an SSC user-written program (I wrote it :)).

A workaround to your problem is to use the -rtitles- option to enter the variable labels.  If you have just one independent variable (for example) named "varname" with variable label "Variable Name", then you would use the option -rtitles("Lagged Variable Name")-.

Another option is to create the lagged variables with -generate- instead of using the -l.- operator in the estimation command, and give the new variables variable labels.  Then -varlabel- will work as you expect.  The problem with using the -l.- operator in the estimation command is that you cannot assign a variable label to -l.varname- (as far as I know).

I do not apply the -varlabel- option to variables that have been lagged with the -l.- operator, because it is unclear how to label them consistently (how should I  distinguish -l.varname- from -l2.varname-) in a form the user is likely to want.
