Dear Dr.Shah,

Many thanks for asdoc command – it has been a very useful tool for documenting analysis on Stata. I’m currently using the command to generate nested regression tables and a couple of questions:

1. As part of the analysis I need to create multiple nested tables, but am struggling to end the current table and switch to the next. Is there some way to do this?

2. Is there some way to report the mean of dependent variable as part of the nested tables?

Best, Alreena

You can use the reset option for starting a new table. See the following example
*Example Make a nested table of 3 regressions

sysuse auto, clear
*First regression
asdoc reg price mpg rep78, nest replace

asdoc reg price mpg rep78 headroom, nest

*Add variable weight and then nest with existing table
asdoc reg price mpg rep78 headroom weight, nest

*Start a new table, note option reset

*First regression
asdoc reg price mpg rep78, nest reset

asdoc reg price mpg rep78 headroom, nest
asdoc reg price mpg rep78 headroom weight, nest 

You can use the add() option to add additional text or statistics to the nested table. In the following code, I first get the mean of the dependent variable using the sum command and write it to the local mean. Then pass on this info to the nested table using the add(Mean,mean’) option.

*First find mean of the dependent variable

qui sum price
local mean = r(mean)'
asdoc reg price mpg rep78, nest reset add(Mean, mean')

*Second regression use turn as the dependent variable
qui sum turn
local mean = r(mean)'
asdoc reg turn mpg rep78 headroom, nest add(Mean, mean')`

Many thanks for your prompt response.

I’ve been able to output the multiple nested tables using the reset option. However, when I add the mean of the dependent variable to these regression tables I get an error – the add option works perfectly for the first instance but the when I use the reset option and add the mean for the next set of regressions, the output “.doc” file is not readable/corrupt. Is there a reason/specific syntax that I might use to resolve this?
