Herve,

If you really need that in a table, then your best option might be to
do quick and dirty -post-ing:

tempfile topost
postfile str20 varname double (mean sd skewness kurtosis pskew pkurt
p) using `topost'
foreach x of varlist <here come your variables> {
   sum `x', detail
   local mean = r(mean)
   local sd = r(sd)
   local skew = r(skewness)
   local kurt  = r(kurtosis)
   sktest `x'
   local pskew = r(P_skew)
   local pkurt = r(P_kurt)
   local p = r(P_chi2)
   post `topost' (`x') (`mean') (`sd') (`skew') (`kurrt') (`pskew')
(`pkurt') (`p')
}
postclose `topost'
preserve
use `topost'
li , sep(0)
restore

I have not tried it, use at your own risk :)). You can also make it a
nice ado-file, etc.
