There are lots of ways to create tables in Stata. Type

. findit table

to see that. However, to create a table to a personal
design in general requires writing a program dedicated
to production of that design. Depending on your Stata
programming skills, you may be better off doing this
with some other software, say directly in a word or
text processor.
I don't know precisely what kind of table Adrian wants to create. However, depending on your Stata programming skills, it might be a good idea to use the suite of programs I describe in a recent Stata Journal article (Newson, 2003), together with -xcontract- and/or -xcollapse- (downloadable from SSC). A draft of the Stata Journal article can be downloaded from my website at
http://www.kcl-phs.org.uk/rogernewson/
using either a browser or the Stata -net- command.

I hope this helps.

Roger
