This does not produce the within-each-cell format, but the ability to do that just involves some LaTeX directives applied to the result. The 'replace' option on 'table' is the key to hanging on to its results:

sysuse auto

preserve

table rep78 foreign,c(sum price mean price median mpg max weight) replace

rename table1 sum_price

rename table2 mu_price

rename table3 median_mpg

rename table4 max_weight

mkmat *,mat(a)

mat rownames a= 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

outtable using cars,mat(a) replace

\begin{table}[htbp]

\begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|l|l|l|}\hline

& rep78 & foreign & sum price & mu price & median mpg & max weight \\ \hline

1 & 1 & 0 & 9129 & 4564.5 & 21 & 3470 \\ \hline

2 & 2 & 0 & 47741 & 5967.625 & 18 & 3900 \\ \hline

3 & 3 & 0 & 178391 & 6607.0742 & 19 & 4840 \\ \hline

4 & 3 & 1 & 14486 & 4828.6665 & 23 & 2130 \\ \hline

5 & 4 & 0 & 52934 & 5881.5557 & 18 & 4130 \\ \hline

6 & 4 & 1 & 56353 & 6261.4443 & 25 & 2750 \\ \hline

7 & 5 & 0 & 8409 & 4204.5 & 32 & 2120 \\ \hline

8 & 5 & 1 & 56634 & 6292.6665 & 25 & 3170 \\ \hline

\end{tabular}

\end{table}

Of course one could probably do that with tabstat, too.
