Is there a way to display row totals but not column totals in tabout?
I only know of the ptotal(none) command which removes both row and column
totals.

This depends on what you want. If you are only asking for text output,
then you can -insheet- the table produced by -tabout-, drop the column
total, and -outsheet- the output. You can even use the likes of
-listtex- or -dataout- to dump it into tex format but it won't be the
same.

If you want a more comprehensive solution, you should write Ian Watson
and ask nicely if he would consider including this feature in the
future version of -tabout- because there seems to be a demand for
this. Dropping something is easier than including it, so this seems
doable.

If you are asking for a way to micromanage it today, with and without
total, then there are other solutions but it would be hard to match
tabout's capabilities.

* without total
outreg2 died drug using myfile, title("Drug type (1=placebo)") /*
*/ cross replace stats(coef) tex

* with total
outreg2 died drug using myfile, /*
*/ title("Drug type (1=placebo)") cross stats(coef) ct("`lev'") tex replace
outreg2 died if drug~=. using myfile, /*
*/ title("Drug type (1=placebo)") cross stats(coef) ct("Total") tex

* with percent
outreg2 died drug using myfile, title("Drug type (1=placebo)") /*
*/ cross replace  tex
