The method Bryan mentions is what I have used in the past, but it is only
worth the effort in my opinion if the table format you require cannot be
produced automatically using the -tabulate- or -table- commands. As I
understand Brandon's question, he is satisfied w/ the table output produced
by Stata but would like to avoid copying & pasting into Excel. Using
-postfile- will require you use something like -listtex- or -outfile- to
convert the new dataset into text format and then insert this into Excel
making use of "Get External Data" or "Text to Columns". In other words, it
won't save any steps.
