Creating tables in Stata using asdoc is super-easy. In this short post, I’ll show how to use asdoc to export Stata data to MS word files. If you have not already installed asdoc, it can be installed by

ssc install asdoc


For exporting values from the data files, we can use the sub-command list of asdoc. We can also make the command conditional using the in and if qualifiers. In the following example, let us use the auto data set from the system folders

sysuse auto, clear
asdoc list price trunk mpg turn in 1/10 , replace




In the above line of code, we wrote asdoc and the sub-command list. After that, we specified the names of the variables that we wanted to export to the MS word document. These variables included price trunk mpg turn. After that, we used the phrase in 1/10, that is the in qualifier to report observation 1 to 10. The option replace will replace any existing output file with the name Myfile.doc
