I see that others have answered the question much better than I could. 
However assumng you are getting the data in the layout you want you may also want to look at the xtable package in R as a very handy alternative to stargazer if you want to produce some good-loking tables in some flavour of LaTeX.  

Odfweave seems to produce good tables in OpenOffice/LibreOffice.
