RE: st: Problems with Outreg not being able to open a file--r(603)

Dear list,

I am using stata to draw graphs with option say by(dist), this enables the graph come up automatically in groups of the variable dist. E.g. North, South. I would like the order to be South, North. But stata selects the order automatically. I would to think that there is a way of changing this so that one specifies the order how the graphs are displayed. Can some help me out there?

The standard comment -- in a way, no comment -- is to underline that -outreg- is not being supported or maintained by its author, who is no longer active in the Stata community. Or so it seems. We hope he is alive and well and enjoying himself somewhere!

That doesn't rule out support by keen users, but it does underline the incentive to switch allegiance to -estout- or -outreg2-, both of which have authors who are active in the Stata community. As you are using Stata 9.1, this is not ruled out by Stata version.

I don't use any of these programs, and -outreg- is sufficiently large and complicated to discourage the idea of a quick glance at the code.
