st: -eststo- -esttab- and $ in LaTex code |

I am using Ben Jann's -estout- and, more specifically, its -esttab- command to create regression tables in LaTex format. I haven't found a way within -esttab- to control dollar signs that are part of my table captions and variable label names so that the command produces LaTex code with a backslash (\) preceding each $. Consequently, I am having to manually type backslashes into the Tex code to get LaTex to compile. Doing this once or twice is not burdensome but when I need to rerun the Tex code several times as I tweak the -esttab- settings, it takes time. For instance, in -esttab- I have a table caption of: title(Test for different effects at \$2M, \$10M, and \$43M) The Tex code produced by -esttab- does not have the backslashes in this caption and, thus, LaTex will not run unless I manually type them into the code. In addition to captions, the same thing happens for variable label names. For instance, I name a variable label "Total assets = \\$10M". -esttab- does not produce a backslash before the dollar sign. Thus, I am forced to manually type a backslash in front of that dollar sign to get LaTex to compile. Is there a way to get the backslashes before the dollar signs into the Tex code for table captions and variable label names using -esttab-? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
