Re: AW: st: Error with outreg (ssc) stata 11

Did you exit Stata after installing -outreg- and then re-launch Stata? This often works when you install a package with a Mata library (at leats in some versions of Stata), because (at least in those versions of Stata) the Mata library path is not immediately updated when a new package is installed, but is reconstructed when Stata is launched again.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

No, unfortunately this does not help. I deinstalled -outreg-(ssc), updated Mata library accordingly and reinstalled -outreg- and it does still not work.

. mata : mata mlib index
.mlib libraries to be searched are now

I am not sure what should be in there when -outreg- is installed...

As -ssc desc outreg- shows,  l_Cfrmt.mlib  is the Mata library associated with this package. I can reproduce the problem you had (not being able to locate BegTex()). As mata describe using l_cfrmt shows, there is no such function in that Mata library.

: mata desc using l_cfrmt
(library contains 3 members)
