Thank you all for responses.

I find formatting tables easier to do in Excel.

Roy Wada, the author of -logout- offered the following solution, which
worked for me:

* drop frivolous rows
sysuse auto, clear
local append replace
foreach y in trunk weight {
  forv s=0/1 {
   qui su mpg if foreign==`s'
   if r(N)!=0{
    caplog using logfile, `append': tabstat mpg if foreign==`s' ,
stat(n mean median p25 p75 min max )
    local append append
   }
  }
}
logout, clear use(logfile)
drop if t1=="variable" & _n~=1
logout, save(test_together) excel replace


* keep them
sysuse auto, clear
local append replace
foreach y in trunk weight {
  forv s=0/1 {
   qui su mpg if foreign==`s'
   if r(N)!=0{
    caplog using logfile, `append': tabstat mpg if foreign==`s' ,
stat(n mean median p25 p75 min max )
    local append append
   }
  }
}
logout, use(logfile) save(test_together) excel replace
