outreg is certainly not limited to four columns, I have used far more. But I only get outreg running in stata 7, although I have installed it in stata 9 as well. If I run outreg in stata 9, I get the error message that stata 9 doesn't support programs for LATER versions of stata. Anyone an idea why I get this strange message? Otherwise I have to move to outreg2 or estout, as someone else suggested.

Thanks, 
Herman

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
