If I'm interpreting the situation correctly, the .tex compiles fine, but the table runs off the page.  If this is correct, this happens because the scale in Beamer is different from the usual TeX scale.  This is from the Beamer user's guide, section 5.6.1:

'In beamer, the default sizes of the fonts are chosen in a way that makes it difficult to fit “too much” onto a slide. Also, it will ensure that your slides are readable even under bad conditions like a large room and only a small projection area. However, you may wish to enlarge or shrink the fonts a bit if you know this to be more appropriate in your presentation environment.

"Once the size of the normal text is settled, all other sizes are usually defined relative to that size. For this reason, LATEX has commands like \large or \small. The actual size these commands select depends on the size of normal text."

So, you can use commands like \large, \small, \scriptsize, etc., to resize the font in the table.

Dear all,

I face some serious troubles to insert estimations tables into a Beamer presentation. Stata tables have been saved using tabout with .tex extension.
Now I try to display such results into a Beamer presentation. But it doesn’t work ! In fact, the table doesn’t fit at all with the scale of the document.

Is there a relevant procedure to save Stata results before inserting them into a Beamer presentation ? (Using tabout is fine for a Latex (standard) document).

Thanks a lot.
