The standard comment -- in a way, no comment --
is to underline that -outreg- is not being 
supported or maintained by its author, who
is no longer active in the Stata community. 
Or so it seems. We hope he is alive and 
well and enjoying himself somewhere! 

That doesn't rule out support by keen users, 
but it does underline the incentive to 
switch allegiance to -estout- or -outreg2-, 
both of which have authors who are active 
in the Stata community. As you are using 
Stata 9.1, this is not ruled out by Stata 

I don't use any of these programs, and
-outreg- is sufficiently large and 
complicated to discourage the idea of a quick glance
at the code.
