This example works for me:

sysuse auto, clear
reg price mpg
matrix A = e(b)
esttab m(A) using test.rtf, replace

esttab is a wrapper for estout. Maybe your  estout ado is not up to date.

Dear Statalist members,
I am trying to produce a rtf file from a matrix and have typed the
following esttab command

esttab m(A)  using filename.rtf , replace

and I get the following error message

varlist not allowed

The command works if the extentsion of the filename is .txt instead of rtf.
I use stata version 12 and the version of esttab is 2.0.5 09mar2009.

Does anyone has experienced a similar problem and has a fix to it?
Thanks in advance for your help
