The help for -tabulate- is found by typing 

. help tabulate

or 

. whelp tabulate 

which points to the -matcell()- option. But 
for other stuff, including cumulative frequencies, 
it is often much better to think in terms of creating
your own variables with -gen- and -egen-. There 
is stuff on this in the FAQ. 

Note also the possibilities of -contract-, 
enhanced since the release of Stata 8.
