Instead of superrows, you can also use -by- with -tabulate-, of course:


*******
sysuse auto, clear
table mpg rep78, contents(freq ) by(foreign)
by foreign, sort : tabulate mpg rep78
*******

1) Look at -table- where you have superrow and supercolumn vars

2) Look at Stat/Transfer which is good at preserving as much information as
possible.

3) MS Word takes both -log- and -txt- so the choice should not matter much.
Specialist tools such as -ssc d estout- are much better at generating tables
and transferring them to a host of other apps for further processing :-)

1) Is it possible to cross tab more than two variables in Stata?
2) I have data set in SPSS how can i directly transfer it to stata without
loosing description of the variables. I know with excel file you can save it
in tiff format and insheet it in stata. what about spss files?
3) What is the good format to save the log file in stata so that it can be
easily transfered to Ms word with the tables intact?


Please preliminary questions but i would like assistance. thanks
