Specifying the -style(tab)- option should not change anything. It
is the default. -estout- produces tab separated tables (as does 
-outreg-) unless an alternative column delimiter is specified 
using the -delimiter()- option or the output style is changed to, 
e.g., -style(tex)-.

It seems that Jun's problem was indeed caused by the legend line at
the end of the table. The line somehow confuses Word. Thus, best 
just omit the -legend- option.
