I am conducting t-tests on dozens of variables (using 'ttest' command)
and would like to make a single table based on the output statistics
(mean, sd, se, obs, etc.). I was trying to use 'estout' to format the
table; nevertheless, I could not 'estimates store', since there are
simply no estimates retuned after such a test (vis--vis those stored
post estimation).
Is there any other way to get around this problem?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Since a ttest is just a simple regression of the variable on the by() variable, you can set them up as regressions, and get all the stats you want saved by estimates.
