As Kit points out, B. Water's failure to reproduce
what I typed accounts for their failure to 
reproduce what I posted. 

In addition to this diversion, note that if the problem 
is picking up a sum for future use, then -tabstat- is 
a long way round. 

tempname foosum 
su foo, meanonly 
scalar `foosum' = r(sum) 

is more direct, with no hidden interpreted code, 
as in -tabstat-.
