You are using the word "macro" in a non-Stata 
sense here, but I guess we all know that. 

I didn't grasp why you need to create tables 
and graphs in Excel. 

As far as the Stata calculation is concerned, 
in broad terms your approach sounds a very indirect way 
to do it. If you say more about your data structure, 
someone can probably suggest a more direct approach.
