Thanks once again to Kit Baum, aa new version of the -xrewide- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -xrewide-.

The -xrewide- package is an extended version of -reshape wide-, and is described as below on my website. In the new version , the recently-added -lxij()- and -lxji()- options, have been renamed to -lxjk()- and -lxkj()-, which I decided were much more rational names. I hope this hasn't inconvenienced too many users.

I am currently planning to submit a Stata Journal article about the -listtab- package (the successor to -listtex-), featuring -xrewide-. The -listtab- package is a general tool for converting a general Stata dataset (or resultsset) to a variety of table formats, including TeX, LaTeX, HTML, Microsoft Rich Text Format (RTF), and XML-based dialects yet to be invented.

Best wishes

      xrewide: Extended version of reshape wide

      The xrewide package is an extended version of reshape wide.
      It saves results in variable characteristics, in addition to
      the dataset characteristics saved by reshape.  This is done
      using additional options for assigning the values and/or
      value labels of the j-variable to characteristics of the
      corresponding generated output variables.  These
      characteristics can be useful for defining column headings
      if the reshaped output dataset is output to a table using
      the listtab package, which can be downloaded from SSC.
