From LaTeX to Word …

Some LaTeX afficiendos might think … WHY? … but there is always a reason to transform your nicely layouted LaTeX file into something that resembles it in word. Journals that do not accept LaTeX files or PDFs as a submission is one, and probably the most important (and annoying) for researchers.

Here is a solution that seems to work. Use the LaTeX generated PDF and transform it into a Word file, using the following link:

I tried it and it works nicely, even with some (basic in my case) formulas.

StatTransfer … who needs it?

In my case this were several tables and cross tables that were then linked to Excel Graphs. So far I did this with copy-pasting or using StatTransfer, today I found a different way …

Export of regression tables to LaTeX

The ado-files --esto-- and —esta— (has to be installed by typing --findit esto-- or —findit esta— into the Stata command window) provides a simple way to export regression tables from Stata to a separate LaTeX-file. At the same time, it is possible to adjust basically everything. I will just present a short example that I use for my regression tables (for adjusting the code, see --help esta--). After installing the ado-packages, run (in this case) two regressions, in my case: Continue reading

The ado-file --sutex-- (has to be installed by typing --findit sutex-- into the Stata command window) provides a simple way to export summary statistics from Stata to a separate LaTeX-file. It is limited in individualised adjustment, but quite OK for most applications. By default, you get mean and standard deviation for variables VAR1, VAR2, VAR3, etc. A syntax could be: Continue reading
