No, you don't lack a package (I forgot to mention -estout/esttab-...) - I 
think the option "stats" (in the loop) had an error caused by a line 
break:

************

         capture {
                 qui tabstat grade if year == `u', by(cats) save stats(N 
mean)
... 

}
************

and that was neither executed nor left an error message. I included the 
capture block because for some years there are no observations.

But the code should work.
