Tabstat is useful module, permitting one to select statistics to be
displayed. For example:

. tabstat q7a q7b q7c, stats(n mean median) column(s)

	    variable |         N      mean       p50
	-------------+------------------------------
	         q7a |       254  6.185039         7
	         q7b |       255  5.011765         5
	         q7c |       254   5.61811         6
	--------------------------------------------

I like means to be displayed to only 2 decimal places. I can format my
variables and ask for formatted output, such as

. format q7a - q7c %9.2f

. tabstat q7a q7b q7c , stats(n mean median) column(s) f

	    variable |         N      mean       p50
	-------------+------------------------------
	         q7a |    254.00      6.19      7.00
	         q7b |    255.00      5.01      5.00
	         q7c |    254.00      5.62      6.00
	--------------------------------------------

But then all the table elements are formatted 9.2f!

Is there an easy way to just get means (or any given) column formatted
uniquely?

TIA - Michael Oakes
