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

outreg is certainly not limited to four columns, I have used far more. But I only get outreg running in stata 7, although I have installed it in stata 9 as well. If I run outreg in stata 9, I get the error message that stata 9 doesn't support programs for LATER versions of stata. Anyone an idea why I get this strange message? Otherwise I have to move to outreg2 or estout, as someone else suggested.

Thanks, Herman

I am running a series of 8 regressions, the results of which I'd like to append into a table using outreg. When I run it, I get the message that the file could not be opened after I try to append my 5th column. When I go to the directory where the results were being saved, the file is gone.

What I did do to get it to work was write the results from the last 4 regressions into a separate file. And it works fine when I do this.

It seems to me that outreg is limited to 4 columns. Is this true?

Here are the results from the 4th regression:

. reg r8mssallch r8mssall03 ses04 swp04_pct

Source | SS df MS Number of obs = 51 -------------+------------------------------ F( 3, 47) = 1.86 Model | 15.3237824 3 5.10792747 Prob > F = 0.1498 Residual | 129.282356 47 2.75068842 R-squared = 0.1060 -------------+------------------------------ Adj R-squared = 0.0489 Total | 144.606138 50 2.89212276 Root MSE = 1.6585

. outreg using c:\Data\NAEP\all.txt, bdec(1) rdec(3) sigsymb(*,**,+) 10pct coefastr ctitle(R8ch) append

But after the 5th regression:
