Sometimes a variable which takes sequential integer
values does not take all possible values that it could.
For instance, -myvar- may represent a survey response
on a scale of 1 to 5, but no respondents chose "3".

I would like to generate frequency tables for such variables
that include rows for the unused values. So

      myvar |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
- ------------+-----------------------------------
          1 |         37       17.54       17.54
          2 |        169       80.09       97.63
          3 |          0        0.00       97.63
          4 |          5        2.37      100.00
          5 |          0        0.00      100.00
- ------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |        211      100.00


Now, I can see how to write the do-file, but I keep
putting it off in the hopes of finding some trick
(or existing program) that will do the job.
