Thank you, Martin, Neil and Austin. All the suggestions were very helpful.

Here are quick follow-up questions for Austin:

1. Following the -tabstatmat- code, -xml_tab A, save(a.xls) replace- gives me the following error:

-file can not be saved at this location-

Looking at the help file for xml_tab, it suggests closing Excel files but I don't have any open.

2. When I tried:

bysort week: tabstat A B C D E F G H I J, stat(mean sd median min max) col(stat) save

tabstatmat a

I get the following error: - no tabstat results in memory-

Instead if I tried:

tabstat A B C D E F G H I J, stat(mean sd median min max) col(stat) by(week) save

tabstatmat a

It worked. I don't why.

Can you help here please?

Thank you,
Shehzad

I get the summary which is presented for each week. Is there a way to export this into Excel so the summary stats for each week appear next to each other instead of how Stata shows it (as separate tables)?

Apologies for posting twice. I thought the first post didnt go.

Thanks,
Shehzad

Look at -table- or -tabstat- with the -by- prefix or an appropriate -if-
qualifier...

Betreff: st: simple question on two-way table

Hi,

I have a simple question about tabulation of summary statistics.

I want a table with summary statistics (mean, median, SD, minimum and maximum) for 5 time points for 10 variables. The columns should show time points (10 weeks, 20 weeks, 30 weeks, 40 weeks, 50, weeks) and rows should reflect the variables (A through J). Each column should be sub-divided into 5 sub-columns for each of the summary statistic. I want the table to look like this (not sure if this will copy well in the email).
