I wish that the ptotal() option of -tabout- included a way to suppress panel column totals as well. Using -esttab- (as Martin suggested) is cleaner option, but you can still get the output you are asking for with -tabout-.

To do so, you need to split out your 'by' variable (drug) and switch the table to 'summary' format.
Here's an example:


sysuse cancer, clear
tabout died drug using "table1.txt", replace ptotal(none)

tab drug, gen(f)
recode f* (0=.)

tabout died using "table1.txt", append sum c(N f1 N f2 N f3) ptotal (none)

I usualy use the "tabout" command to generate tables.

Hope this helps,
