ssc d tabout

to note that Ian Watson is the author. BTW, I also suggested a viable route
that let`s one avoid having to fend for oneself... 

What are the specific advantages of -tabout- over -estpost tabstat-?
Particularly given that Shehzad has already figured out the underlying call
to -tabstat- while -tabout- syntax is quite complex, even with the brilliant
tutorial pdf...

You don't (quite) have to fend for yourself as Martin suggests.

You can get most of what you're after from -tabout- by Ben Jann (-ssc
install tabout-) which allows you to generate the tables that Stata is
displaying except writing them to files.  This is concerned with the
_content_ of your data.

Getting them next to each other in Excel is then a matter of _style_,
and it is your preference to have them presented to each other in
Excel.  You'd likely have to -tabout- each week to a separate file
(_content_), then open in Excel and copy and paste so that they are
laid out as you desire (_style_).

Well worth reading the PDF that comes with -tabout- for the examples
and tutorial.
