Why no one among thousands wants to answer a question is at best a
matter for conjecture.

As has been pointed out before, -outreg2- (which is, as you do not
explain, contrary to a long-standing and often repeated request on
this list,  is a user-written program, from SSC) is a popular
download. However, its users often do not answer questions on it and
its author is not a member of the list. Why the first is true I don't
know: perhaps everyone leaves it to someone else or feels that though
a user they are not an expert. I can't comment on your (a) or (b)
because I have never used it for its purpose. (I did once use it to
check out someone's problem with an error report.)

I'd contact the author directly for support if no one offers a
solution in response to this reminder, or use an alternative program.
