Consider this example: 

. sysuse auto 
. table rep78, c(mean mpg)

----------------------
Repair    |
Record    |
1978      |  mean(mpg)
----------+-----------
        1 |         21
        2 |     19.125
        3 |    19.4333
        4 |    21.6667
        5 |    27.3636
----------------------

. egen meanmpg = mean(mpg), by(rep78)

. egen axis = axis(meanmpg rep78), label(rep78)

. _crcslbl axis rep78 

. table axis, c(mean mpg)

----------------------
Repair    |
Record    |
1978      |  mean(mpg)
----------+-----------
        2 |     19.125
        3 |    19.4333
        1 |         21
        4 |    21.6667
        5 |    27.3636
----------------------

The -egen- function -axis()- is in -egenmore- on SSC. 
You should install -egenmore- using -ssc-.  

The dopey name -axis()- reflects the fact that it 
was written with graphics in mind. But the same problem 
arises with tables, as your post shows.
