In addition to various helpful answers to threads 
started by buddyb: 

-describe, simple- in Stata 9 is in fact a wrapper 
for -ds-, so you can go there directly. -ds- 
has several options when used directly that are not
extra options for -describe-, so a look at the help 
for -ds- is advisable. (Note that the syntax 
for Stata < 9 differs.) 

One thread started by buddyb raised a generally
applicable detail. Even very new Stata answers 
have questions to which the answer is use -foreach-
(or -forvalues-). 

The documentation for -foreach- is in [P], which 
many users do not access to. The on-line help is 
a little terse, and rather presupposes some knowledge
of (Stata) programming. 

However, a basic tutorial on these commands 
was published in the Stata Journal: 

SJ-2-2  pr0005  . . . . . .  Speaking Stata:  How to face lists with fortitude
        Q2/02   SJ 2(2):202--222                                 (no commands)
        demonstrates the usefulness of for, foreach, forvalues, and
        local macros for interactive (non programming) tasks

and a talk version of that paper is accessible even if you do 
not see the Journal: 

http://fmwww.bc.edu/RePEc/usug2002/fortitude.pdf

or 

http://www.cpc.unc.edu/services/computer/presentations/statatutorial/cox_article.pdf

By contriving that the last slide of the talk was 42, the author contrived
the worst (triple?) pun in the history of Stata to date. Or so he 
proudly claims.
