Hi Bert, If you use some of the other options (e.g., to denote the end of a line, delimiting columns, headers/footers, etc...) you could export as tab delimited and avoid any of the LaTeX protections. It isn't a direct solution but it can at least get you a working solution for the moment. - Billy Sent from my iPhone On May 25, 2012, at 9:06, Bert Lloyd <bert.lloyd.89@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear Statalist, > > I have a question about creating LaTeX tables using esttab (version > 2.0.5 09mar2009, downloaded by -net install estout.pkg-). > > I would like to include LaTeX markup in the variable labels.
