I strongly recommend that users who want to produce formatted output
from regression-type commands to check out Ben Jann's -estout- command,
available from SSC.  It is very powerful, and useful for both TeX and
Word users. (In my opinion, -estout- dominates -outreg- for these sorts
of tasks.)  Users who may find these programs too complicated might also
check out Stata's own -estimates table- command -- that is a very useful
output formatter in itself and simple to use.

I would second yesterday's posters who asked for -estout-type facilities
for formatting output from tabulation commands, in particular -tabulate-
and -svytab-.  I suspect that the key to doing this would be via
processing of the matrices provided in returned results from each of
these commands. -tabulate, matcell()- is a rclass command returning a
matrix of counts; -svytab- is an eclass command which also leaves
results in a matrix. Can Ben's arm twisted?  Alternatively, I hope that
Ian Watson (one of yesterday's posters on this topic) can be encouraged
to make his proposed developments in this direction.
