If I had a need to mass-produce such tables, I would look into the
possibility of having an automated process that would create the distilled
datasets in Stata, translate them to SPSS (using Stat/Transfer or a similar
product), and launch SPSS to use that dataset and do whatever it needs to
do to it.
* Ability to quickly copy over selected output straight to Microsoft
Word which looks as good as it does in the output window. I know you can
achieve this by running STATA's "translate" command but a quicker way would
be preferred. A two way output screen similar in appearence to SPSS's that
allows users to effortlessly copy over selected output to Word would be
ideal (but I think that's asking a bit much).
Unfortunately in my commercial environment I'm
often called upon to produce lots of mind numbing contingency tables and it
is solely in this regard that SPSS has the advantage.
You might spend a whole day making that work, if it is indeed possible, but
it would be worthwhile if you succeed.
