# RE: st: tabulate, summarize() for svy data

Glad you got useful help.

On the other side, I don't think we can know precisely what you have looked at unless you say. Thus "I could not find it in the help file" conveys no detail. "I looked at the help for -svy: tabulate oneway- and -svy: tabulate twoway- and neither seems to be what I want" would have prevented my reply, "not helpful" as it turned out to be.

Thank you Steve and Tim. Nicks's response was not helpful at all. I had already search the summarized commands. I really wanted the -summarize()- option.
