I agree with Michael that -tabstat- sounds like the 
first port of call. 

In addition, two reviews in the Stata Journal 
covered some relevant material: 

Problems with tables, Part I. SJ 3(3):309--324 (2003) 

Problems with tables, Part II. SJ 3(4):420--439 (2003)

-collapse- and then -list- is one way...
