One way is to wrap the commands into an ado file, which simply means you add
one line to the beginning, and one line to the end, of the current do file:

For example imagine you wish to execute these 3 commands:

sysuse auto, clear
tab foreign rep78
summ price turn

You type the following into a text editor:

program test_x
sysuse auto, clear
tab foreign rep78
summ price turn
end

save it as test_x.ado  and execute it in Stata.

You can put curly braces around the block of commands whose output you do
not wish to see:

qui{
	//no output for commands here
}

Dear Stata Users,

Thanks for those who replied to my previous question, specially Nick Cox. I
have a further question regarding the results window. I have to carry out
repetitive commands, lots of them, which I wrote in a do file. I would like
to prevent them from appearing in the results window and only have the
outputs which are only tables. 

I know the command "quietly", but when I include it, it suppresses all the
output.

I would appreciate any comments on this.

Kind regards
