See also -contract- and -collapse-. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss BTW, the output from -table- still allows you to calculate a ratio where appropriate: ************* sysuse auto, clear table rep78 foreign, contents(sum headroom ) row replace list, sepby(rep78) noo bys rep78 (foreign): gen ratio=table1[1]/table1[2] if _N==2 list, sepby(rep78) noo ************* Martin Weiss Where and how do you want to use/further process the results? You may want to look at Ian`s -ssc d tabout- (the ssc server may be down at the moment, just as Kit said last night). Hewan Belay Back in 2009 there was a thread about how to save stata outputs, such as outputs from the -table- command, as datasets: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-04/msg00321.html . This seems to work well only in one-way tables. For example, using the example Martin gave back then, the following works well: sysuse auto, clear table rep78, contents(sum headroom ) row table rep78, contents(sum headroom ) row replace list However, I want to save a twoway table as a dataset. Notice that the datset doesn't look much like the output table: table rep78 foreign, contents(sum headroom ) row table rep78 foreign, contents(sum headroom ) row replace list I want it to look more or less like the output table, that is, in this case a dataset with three variables--rep78, domestic, and foreign--for example so that I can create, say, an additional variable which gives me the ratio of domestic to foreign etc. Sure, I can do -reshape- and so forth, but it would be much cleaner if the output could be produced as a dataset without me having to write several lines to get it to look like the output. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
