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
--------

% matrix: a file: cars.tex 6 Feb 2005 17:49:34
\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.
