George, Adding labels to the table is no problem. You just need to define what the labels are first with the -label define- and -label values- commands. Here is an illustration: // Martin's code sysuse auto, clear generate x = 1 // add labels label define rep78 1 "Very good" 2 "Good" 3 "Average" 4 "Poor" 5 "Very poor" label values rep78 rep78 table x rep78, contents(mean price mean mpg) -- Matt matt.spittal@cancervic.org.au -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu]On Behalf Of George Hoffman Sent: Wednesday, 29 October 2008 11:18 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: RE: Summary statistics table problem Martin - Yes, this works, except for no row labels, but I can live with this. I might be inspired to write something to 'fix' this problem.
