" but it does if I type -help tabm-"


Not even that helps in my case (why would -findit- not find it, but -help-
does?). Just to be sure: Where is this command from?

Beth:

-tabm- does a tabulation of multiple variables.  It doesn't show up  
for me either when I type -findit tabm- , but it does if I type -help  
tabm- (so, tabm is not an abbreviation of one of the six items that  
comes up in Martin's -findit- search).


The help file indicates that -tabm- uses options from -tabulate-, so  
you can display percentages rather than frequencies with something like:

*****
clear
sysuse auto
tabm for rep78, cell nofreq

**or all the %**

tabm for rep78, cell row col nofreq
******
