I am trying to genereate counts from a 3-way cross-classification of 
variables into CSV, and eventually into EXCEL. I have many such 3 way 
tables to make, with two variables (B (2 levels) and C (4 levels)) being 
constant across a large set of variables (A) which represent the third 
dimension. Of course, for any particular value of A, any particular 
cross-classification with B & C may have a count of 0.

STATA clearly generates nice 3D tables on screen using the TABLE 
command, and I have worked with the REPLACE option, but I am struggling 
to find a way to produce
a dataset  out of STATA that I can readily and quickly.  For example, 
the TABLE, replace option does not generate row  when the 
cross-classification yields 0 observations, making it very difficult to 
cut and paste sections of data out of table, replace  and put them into 
the spreadhseet. TABLE, replace, also has a disconcerting habit of 
switching the order of variables across various A values, further making 
this messy and error-prone work.

I'd welcome any ideas. This must be very straight foward.
