With eight dimensions it is difficult to see how any program could cope
with line lengths ~ 100 (rather than say ~ 1000) and not produce an
awful mess one way or the other. 

See, however, 

-contract- for the export case 

-groups- on SSC for a lengthwise presentation that can cope with that
number of variables. This was also written up in 

SJ-3-4  pr0011  . . . . . . . .  Speaking Stata: Problems with tables,

I want to create a large, multiway contingency table in Stata. I need
to reduce the table for a latent class analysis in another program.
However, with the table and tabulate commands in Stata I only have the
opportunity to cross two variables. With the userwritten command
tab3way, I can cross three variables. However, I need to cross around
eight polytomous variables and get the output into a data file / text
file.
