The original questioner clearly specified that he wanted a column vector. In this case, -tabstat- saves results as a row vector. For that desired outcome, you need to transpose. If you are happy with a row vector, the transpose is indeed unnecessary. > 2) if i like getting not alone the results of the total > mean but also the differences between the mean of all items > and grouped items i used the following ado file.

I'd approach this from the point of view of creating temporary variables which are deviations from the mean, and then calling up -tabstat-; that is, do more upstream of -tabstat- and much less downstream.
