I am a bit confused on what you want. Your request
says one thing, but your example says another. 

However, I don't know a way to use -makematrix- to pick up 
odds ratios, etc., after -logistic-. These are not 
within its scope. Sorry. Perhaps Roger Newson's suite 
can do this. 

Moreover, you want to be able to say 


(strictly, I think you mean "S_E_??") 
to pick up a list of globals via a wildcard. 
I don't think anything in Stata is that smart. 
The idea of a wildcard applies in Stata to varlists 
or to numbered lists of local `1', `2', etc. 
I am not aware that it extends beyond those. 
Certainly -makematrix- is not that smart.
