AW: st: Table Export of suffix / index

I just tried. It looks fine in the label section of Stata itself, but the export to Latex still produces "\symbol{36} which then gives a $ in the PDF

It funny though that if i put a backslash some place, he automatically transforms it to $ /backslash$ so Latex would get it.

Since Stata treats $ as a global macro reference, you have to escape it with \.
This should work (at least in Stata 11.2) label var x "\$CO_2\$"
Best,

Note in particular that the $ sign is used in Stata in global macro references (when it is not taken literally as a dollar sign). So using $ $ or $$ $$ to indicate math[s] would be difficult at best in Stata.
