Hi Hassan,
-xml_tab- can read equation names as well from the matrix and output those strings, if there are repeating string they will be automatically merged:
matrix A = 1, 2, 3, 4
matrix colnames A = Weight Height Weight Height
matrix coleq A = January January February February
xml_tab A, showeq ...
This will produce the output you need.
Alternatively, you can specify column names super-column names directly as options for -xml_tab- (matrix col/rownames have length restriction and don't allow some symbols...), you can write simply:
xml_tab B, showeq cnames(Weight Height Weight Height) ceq(January January February February)
Hope this helps,
