-tabm- is exactly what I was looking for (embarassed to have missed it)

Thanks

To do this from first principles
one strategy is a temporary -stack- or -reshape-.

I have a set of 32 variables, each can have any of the categorical values. What I want is an output that (excluding the header) is 32 rows by 5 columns, where the first column is the variable name and columns 2-4 are the three categories (frequency or count) and the last column is the total number having one of the three categories.

I admit that I cannot see even how to start coding this so I'm hoping that either someone already has coded it (though I couldn't find anything) or that someone has a hint or two they could share.
