I think you may want to use -collapse- and outsheet to get the stats you want, but I'm not sure what you mean by category_`X' in your commands -- do you have a different categorical variable breakout for each of the 100 variables? Assuming that you dont, collapse v1 - v100 , by(category) will give you a dataset of means by category. Then collapse (sd) v1-v100 , by(category) will give you std devs. You can combine the two commands, but then you have to type out new names for all 100 std dev vars.. Instead you can use -renvars- to rename them after the fact and then use -merge- to combine the means and std. devs. You may then want to re-order the vars and then use -outsheet- to dump them to a text file.
