This may not be elegant, but try:

preserve

collapse (sum) b, by(a)

save filename, replace

restore

I hope it helps.

Dear all:

I am wondering if anyone knows how to save table output from TABLE or
TABSTAT to a stata data file. 

For example, I have used 

. table a, c(sum b)

to generate a list of summary statistics: 

	
a       sum(b)
	
1	19372
2	102820
3	21403
4	19001
5	82549
6	15664
7	83616
8	50149


How do I save this and maybe change the name of the two variables for
later use.

Thank you very much. 

Shuaizhang
