Hello Stata users,

I can imagine many of you to have had this question on their minds no matter what your area of work: How can I create an output of results of estimation work that shows up more or less neatly in table form (ie with figures in cells as opposed to listed next to each other as text. And I don’t mind if the resulting table is in excel or other spreadsheet, or, say, a word table. So far what I’ve been doing is:
* saving results (along with commands) by typing
log using myestimations

* opening the resulting smcl file with excel, and setting fixed width cells etc. so that things show up in table form

* then formatting the resulting excel file by shifting things around, deleting unnecesary cells, etc.

The problem with this indirect way of getting my results into a table format is that the latter formatting takes forever. So: 1) Is there a way to create the log directly into excel or another table form?  2) Can I log just the results, not results + commands?

Thanks for any ideas!
