Sorry to disturb again, but the message that the txt file of the outreg table could not be opened may point to the fact that this txt file is open. If the txt file is open you will definitely get that same message.

I am running a series of 8 regressions, the results of which I'd like
to append into a table using outreg. When I run it, I get the message
that the file could not be opened after I try to append my 5th column.
When I go to the directory where the results were being saved, the
file is gone.

What I did do to get it to work was write the results from the last 4
regressions into a separate file. And it works fine when I do this.

It seems to me that outreg is limited to 4 columns. Is this true?

Here are the results from the 4th regression:

. reg r8mssallch r8mssall03 ses04 swp04_pct

      Source |       SS       df       MS              Number of obs =      51
