If I understand what is sought, -fsum- or -tabstat- may return what you want.
For example,
tabstat x y, stat(sum) col(stat)
where x & y constitute the varlist (I don't believe there is a limit on the number of 
variables).  Type -findit tabstat- for more detail.  
As for -fsum-, this is general syntax:
fsum x y, stat(sum) 
Again, type -findit fsum- in the command window for a more detailed explanation.
hope this helps,
Clint
