This thread piqued my interest in how to use Hmisc latex() to produce the tables that I actually want, rather than the ones that come out by default. Actually, I'd be glad to use R2HTML or any other tool if I can make the output suit my taste.

Here's a small working example that does not require any special libraries.

x <- rnorm(100)

y <- rnorm(100)

mylm <- lm(y~x)

Estimates <- cbind(coef(mylm), sqrt(diag(vcov(mylm))))
colnames(Estimates) <- c("OLS estimate","std. error")
rownames(Estimates) <- c("Intercept","Education")
latex(Estimates,file="/home/pauljohn/test4.tex",digits=4)

That creates the top part of the table like I want it, except there are no stars on the standard errors.

I want to add the diagnostic information, sample size, the R-square, and root mean square error:

sumobj <- summary(mylm)

## tedious pasting alert:

sumStat <- paste("N= ",sum(sumobj$df[-1]), ", R^2 =",
sumobj$r.squared, ", RMSE = ", sumobj$sigma)

# The following does not have the desired effect because it creates and appends a whole new table

latex(sumStat, file="/home/pauljohn/test4.tex", append=T)

How can I "snug up" sumStat right at the end of the table?
