Yes, I agree with Daniel. The -esttab- or -estout- are not part of
official Stata, but still the help files from both gives that these
are generally used to export regression results from Stata to some
common file types like txt, doc, xls, csv etc. in general. Both works
after estimating results as stored by -estimates store- or -eststo-

esttab is a wrapper for estout. It produces a pretty-looking
    publication-style regression table from stored estimates without much
    typing. The compiled table is displayed in the Stata results window or,
    optionally, written to a text file specified by using filename. If filename
    is specified without suffix, a default suffix is added depending on the
    specified document format (".smcl" for smcl, ".txt" for fixed and tab,
    ".csv" for csv and scsv, ".rtf" for rft, ".html" for html, and ".tex" for
    tex and booktabs).

and the -estout- for

 but in part. -esttab- only saves the out on Stata output window, not
exporting. As a simple starting point, reading for estta
