Ying used -table- and got the following:

    calmon | mean(expov2)     N(expov2)
 ----------+---------------------------
  2000 Oct |     .0634935      1.80e+07
  2000 Nov |     .0559704      3.61e+07
  2000 Dec |     .0599429      5.41e+07
  ...
 
Question: How to get N(expov2) display nicely?
 
----------------------------------------
 
I couldn't make it, even with the cellwidth(12) option; formatting seems not to affect the N() column:
 
. sysuse auto
. gen x=1000000
. table foreign [fweight=x] , c(mean mpg n mpg) cellwidth(12)
 
--------------------------------------
 Car type |    mean(mpg)        N(mpg)
----------+---------------------------
 Domestic |      19.8269      5.20e+07
  Foreign |      24.7727      2.20e+07
--------------------------------------
 
Alternative: -tabulate, summarize- :
 
. tabulate foreign [fweight=x] , summarize(mpg)
 
            |            Summary of Mileage (mpg)
   Car type |        Mean   Std. Dev.       Freq.        Obs.
------------+------------------------------------------------
   Domestic |   19.826923   4.6974673    52000000    52000000
    Foreign |   24.772727   6.4591854    22000000    22000000
------------+------------------------------------------------
      Total |   21.297297    5.746279    74000000    74000000

Hope this helps.
