outtable automates the conversion of a Stata matrix to a LaTeX table, written to an external file. The table is presented with row and column names taken from the specified matrix. Thus, one need only generate the appropriate matrix using standard Stata commands. By default, only the lower triangle of a symmetric matrix will be written. The using clause is required, and must specify the name of a file to which the LaTeX table is to be written, without the .tex extension. If the file exists, either the replace option or the append option must be specified. outtable7 may be used in Stata version 7.
