I want to generate a frequency table for one variable which has long (may

display the complete value of the variable in the table?

You might want to try -table-.  It can adjust widths.  If I recall
correctly, it won't show zero-count cells, however.

An alternative is to use -contract- and then -list , string(40)-.

sysuse auto, clear
preserve
decode foreign, generate(car_type)
contract car_type, freq(count)
foreach var of varlist _all {
   char define `var'[varname] "`: variable label `var''"
}
list , noobs abbreviate(20) string(40) subvarname
restore
exit
