Eamonn

While tabulate gives you no control over formats, -tabout- does. For example:

tabout x y using myfile.txt, format(%9.1fc)

While -tabout- is mainly concerned with sending its results to a text file, it echoes its results to the screen and you can thereby easily view the format you want.

-tabout- is available from the ssc archives. Type

ssc desc tabout

from inside Stata.

Kind regards

Ian Watson
