Rather than process estimation results in other applications, such as spreadsheets, this article shows how easy it is to process them inside Stata by undertaking some basic programming with matrices. Spreadsheet visualization helps define the task, but the steps are all core Stata: macros, loops, and matrices. The programming challenge is only a modest one for novices, while the benefits of converting do-files into ado programs can be considerable.
