Abstract: This addition to Stata enables extensive formatting of statistical tables created within Stata, creating native Word or TeX tables. Users can specify font sizes, font types, text justification, table cell height and width, cell boundary lines (of different styles), titles, labels, and footnotes, among other attributes. New data can be merged or appended to existing tables to create more complex tables. This system can provide full formatting for statistical tables similar to the way that Stata provided granular formatting for graphics starting in Stata 8. Users could use this to create a complete statistical appendix in print-ready form with a single command within Stata. This system is for use by programmers. The table formatting system is implemented in Mata for speed and compact memory use. Mata string matrices made for efficient coding. I have reimplemented the -outreg- ado program using this system, as well as written a program to create formatted cross-tabulation tables like those created by -tabulate-. I also plan to write a program to create formatted summary statistics tables.
