Carole-- You might trick -estout- (SSC) into doing this, or -collapse- and use -listtex- (SSC) or somesuch, but I would recommend writing a loop which calculates the statistics and writes them to a text file with -file- as in http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-04/msg01090.html http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-09/msg00837.html http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-10/msg00887.html etc. sysuse auto, clear ren rep78 x1 ren for x2 ren mpg x3 file open t using /tab.tex, write replace levelsof x1, loc(l1) levelsof x2, loc(l2) file write t " & `: var label x2' \\ " file write t _n "`: var label x1' " foreach c of loc l2 { file write t " & `: label `: val label x2' `c'' " } file write t " \\" _n foreach r of loc l1 { file write t "`r' &" foreach c of loc l2 { su x3 if x1==`r' & x2==`c', meanonly file write t " `: di %4.3g r(mean)' & " } file write t " \\ " _n " & " foreach c of loc l2 { su x3 if x1==`r' & x2==`c', meanonly file write t " `: di %4.3g r(N)' & " } file write t " \\ " _n } file close t type /tab.tex tab x1 x2, sum(x3) freq mean The above is just meant to be a quick example of what you can do with this approach, which is completely general and can be adapted to any need that might arise. (I have even used it to make graphs in TeX files using pstricks, which approach is of course quite obsolete now.) Though if you wanted an RTF file or an XML file you would be better off using -estout- or the -tabstatmat- plus -xml_tab- approach. On Feb 9, 2008 12:59 AM, Carole J.
