In Stata 8, this should do the trick:

. statsby "ktau x y " TauB=r(tau_b) P=r(p) , by(z) saving(myfile)

In Stata 9, it would be:

statsby TauB=r(tau_b) P=r(p) , by(z) saving(myfile) : ktau x y

With STATA 8, I tried

_statsby "ktau x y" exp_list, by(v w z) saving(myfile)_

where for exp_list I tried _se and _b (I have to admit that the grammar of exp_list remains a riddle to me).

The error produced is r(301): last estimates not found.

In principle, -statsby- sounds a good solution.
However, we cannot comment on what went wrong without seeing your code. Also, the syntax of -statsby- differs between Stata 8 and Stata 9, so you would need to specify version as well.

I have to do a bunch of Kendall's tau correlations. Now the output of

_ktau x y, by(z)_

is quite exaustive, and I am mostly interested in
- Kendall's tau-a
- Prob > z

Is there a way to direclty produce a table of the results, like

tau-a prob ...
a b ...
c d ...,

instead of producing text output?

Is _statsby_ a solution for my problem? It does not seem to work for my puposes, though.
