Hello,

Yes you are right, symbols and greek letters work but apparently, any
mathematical solution does not.
Sorry, I don't know the solution!

Thx for the tip, but it is somehow strange. 

If I was looking for filling in a greek lamdba it would work when I add
coeflabels(CO2capita "$\lambda$")

but when I try

coeflabels(CO2capita "$CO_2$")

he only exports one $

Nobody else ever had that problem?

Hello,

In esttab I write:   coeflabels(income "$\lambda$") and then the latex table
shows the greek lamba letter nicely.

In estout I write:   label varlabels(income "$\lambda$") and it also works
nicely!

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,

it is not taken literally as a dollar sign). So using $ $ or $$ $$ to
indicate math[s] would be difficult at best in Stata.
