```Thank you for the very helpful suggestion. It partly solves
my problem. However, it is not working that well where there is a large number of regressions that I want to export results from. Stata (I use SE) can only handle up to 300 estimates. So I must export these and then say -eststo clear- and then run more regressions. But, when I append the other results to the same file (using esttab using myfile, append) it puts the new results UNDER the original ones. Whereas I need them all side by side in excel. Is there any way to -append- in -esttab- to get results side-by-side? Or an alternative way of achieving same the result?

Thank you again!!

The simplest way is to use the -eststo:- prefix, like in the
example below

*---------------------- begin example -------------------
sysuse auto, clear
eststo clear
eststo : nl (mpg = {b0} + {b1}*price + {b1}*weight + ///
{b1}*displ + {b0}/20*gear_ratio - ///
{b0}/20*foreign + {b1}*length)    ///
if foreign == 1

eststo : nl (mpg = {b0} + {b1}*price + {b1}*weight + ///
{b1}*displ + {b0}/20*gear_ratio - ///
{b0}/20*foreign + {b1}*length)    ///
if foreign == 0

esttab
*--------------------- end example ----------------------
( For more on how to use examples I sent to statalist see:

Hope this helps,
