-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:

sysuse auto
tabm for rep78, cell nofreq

**or all the %**

tabm for rep78, cell row col nofreq

different possibilities...

Betreff: st: tabm with %'s

Hi there
Is there any way to get the same output as tabm but with percents
rather than counts?

I am compiling many tables from surveys that had matrices with likert
scales.  Example, rate how much you agree with each of the following
items on a strongly agree to strongly disagree scale.  It would save
me some time if there was a routine almost exactly like tabm but that
produced %'s rather than counts.
