Mike,

If you use the -sortvar- option, that should solve your problem:

reg enrolled hh_risk_1 hh_risk_2 age sex, r
outreg2 using enrolledreg, drop(hh_risk_2) tex(fragment) replace
reg enrolled hh_risk_1 hh_risk_2 age sex, r
outreg2 using enrolledreg, sortvar( hh_risk_1 hh_risk_2 age sex) tex(fragment)

What happens is that the variable that is used in the second regression only (hh_risk_2) appears at the bottom row of the table. Initially, only one of the variables was included in each regression, but I included both variables in both regressions and added the drop() option in an attempt to let the variable appear but without the results. This did not work.
