spec_stand, a small ado file working as an interface for dstdize, is available on ssc, and makes it much more natural producing lists of standardised/unadjusted rates with standard errors.

on the other side, distrate, also avilable on ssc, does the same thing but does not lie on dstdize, in particular it computes confidence intervals in a different way.

hope this helps,
