I don't know if this will help, but you can colour cells in Latex using
the package colortbl. So you'd have to install and use this package in
your Latex code: \usepackage{colortbl}

Then you can change the colour of a cell in a table to red, for example,
by inserting \cellcolor{red} into the Latex code for that cell:
text & text & \cellcolor{red} text & text  \\

I don't use -estout- so I haven't tried this, but using the example in
the previous thread that you cited, I'd try (par("\cellcolor{red} " "")
in the cells that you wanted coloured red.

Subject: st: Coloring specific cells using -estout- and latex

Dear Statalisters,

I am looking for a way to color certain cells in a latex table
produced by -estout-.  The goal is the highlight individual cells of
coefficients (not rows or columns).  For instance, I want the
coefficient on the third variable in the second model to be in red.  I
imagine the process would be similar to -estout-'s assigning of
significance stars to coefficients, although I would prefer to define
my target cells directly and manually.

An existing thread shows how to color variable names and rows a RTF
table with -estout-.  However, all rows are treated the same, e.g. the
rows of coefficients are blue and the t-statistics red.  My interest
is in selected cells only.

Thanks for any pointers,
