Is there a fast way to get the results of a twoway table with multiple statistics into a matrix format so I can access all the results programmaticly. I'm hoping to create a way to produce a latex table from the table command. Suggestions? I assume there is nothing like this already made (I'm aware of labtabstat outtable etc). Ideally it would produce a latex file with rows and columns plus multiple lines within each cell for each statistic.
