    Hi, everyone! After installing and updating asdocx, I ran the following codes of the simple example on the asdocx website.

    * Load example dataset
    use http://fintechprofessor.com/asdocxAddins/table1.dta, clear
    
    * Make table 1 using the template(table1) option
    asdocx tab immigrant bone_arthritis bone_backspin ///
    bone_backother bone_neck bone_fibro bone_lupus ///
    bone_ehlers bone_deform bone_amp bone_burn nervous_ms ///
    nervous_seizure nervous_park nervous_stroke ///
    other_otherhealth other_anyother , ///
    template(table1) table_layout(autofit) replace

    However, my Stata 16 kept giving me the following error message.

    masterclass_populator(): 3499 flexmat_to_excel() not found
    : – function returned error

    I Googled flexmat_to_excel and searched whether there were any discussions in this forum that mentioned flexmat_to_excel, but I did not find out any relevant results. Does anyone know how to solve this error?

    Hello Kan Wang
    Seems you have updated asdocx after a long time. The reason you are getting this error is that the asdocx_update command had a bug, it did not include a code to update the flexmat_to_excel program. This is now fixed. Just once you need the following code, and after that, you can use the usual asdocx_update command to update asdocx.

    net install asdocx, from(http://fintechprofessor.com) replace
