# st: RE: question about value labels

```I guess you mean variable labels. This kind of problem is usually tackled in one way or another by user-written reporting programs. Users of -outreg- (SSC) or -estout- (SSC) may be able to help.

Stata's problem with putting variable labels in that place is at least twofold. First, variable labels can easily be too long to fit in the space available. Second, variable labels can contain characters not allowed in tagging coefficients and other results.

I'm using Stata 11.2 on W7 32.
This is my problem. When I run quantile (or other estimation command)
regression
I obtain this results:

As I want to pass this result to a tex table I'd like to put the
original the original value labels, that is:
Divorced and not _INewStatC~2.
Is there a way to do this automatically?
