Thank you David and Nick for the information.

Is there any example online or in the user guide about how to use outreg including varlabels?

I am used to use command:
label name educ

label variable educ "education"

label define educ 1 "primary" 2 "secondary" 3 "tertiary"

label value educ educ

when i use outreg after running a linear regression, the output that are shown in the  variable coloumn is for variable name only.  
I do not know yet whether there is an option to use variable labels for the output. If there is any, it will be useful when i run a regression with many depvars with categories etc.
