I am sorry if this is a trivial question, but I have not found a
solution anywhere. I don't even seem to know how to phrase my search
query right for this one.  

I need to save a table as a matrix and 

.table variableName , c(stat1 var1)  
will produce a table that i would like stored in a matrix. How do I do
this? Tab (or tabulate) will only save number of observations in a
scalar 

.tabstat variableName, stats(count) save 
Will store the results in N 1x1 matrices that I suppose I could
concatenate - but since the number of 1x1 matrices will vary this is not
ideal. 

I need it to workaround a command that does not allow by() , so I need
not just the actual statistic in the table, but the value of
variableName in the matrix as well
