I generated the tables in the paper for a latex document using est2tex & sutex.
I am trying to use the same commands to generate latex slides for the same paper
and ran into a variety of problems (e.g., how to split the tables across two slides, how to
shrink the font size of both the coefficients and the t-statistics).

Has anyone tries to do this and come up with any tricks?
A possible solution is to use -listtex-, which creates TeX or LaTeX tables with 1 row per observation of a Stata data set, instead of 1 row per row of a Stata matrix. -listtex- is downloadable from SSC, and can be used with an -if- qualifier to output subsets.

To create data sets ready to be output using -listtex-, you can use the -parmest- package in the case of parameter estimates, the -xcollapse- package in the case of general summary statistics, and the -xcontract- package in the case of frequencies and percentages. All these packages are downloadable from SSC.

To find out more about the use of -listtex- together with other packages to create publication-ready output, see Newson (2003)in the latest Stata Journal. A pre-publication draft of this article can be downloaded from my website at
either using a browser or using the -net- command in Stata.

I hope this helps.
