-outtable- expects to find a variable named r2 so you could use -mat rownames- to give it varnames it won't choke on.  
Just a warning that I'm not a latex or -outtable- user--I would probably do this with -tabout- (from SSC):
********************!
clear
global F5 "/Users/ida/Desktop//"
**
inp nace year turnover
1 1 1
1 2 1
1 3 4
1 10 10 
1 6 9
2 1 3
2 10 99
2 2 2
12 1 99
12 10 99
end
**
label var nace "Industry"
lab var year "Year"
lab var turnover "Turnover"

//1. using outtable//
mkmat nace turnover if year==1, matrix(X)
mkmat turnover if year==10, matrix(Y)
matrix Z=X,Y
mat li Z
mat rownames Z=n y t    // this should help you avoid the "r2" error
outtable using "$F5/table1",mat(Z) replace norowlab label caption("Turnover")
**

//prepare/reshape  data for use with listtex//
preserve
g id = _n
reshape wide turnover, i(id) j(year)
drop id
order nace
keep nace turnover1 turnover10
foreach v in turnover1 turnover10 {
bys nace: egen m`v' = max(`v')
replace `v' = m`v'
drop m`v'
} 
bys nace: g o = 1==_n
drop if o!=1
drop o

//2. using listtex//
cap which listtex
if _rc ssc install listtex, replace
listtex nace turnover1 turnover10  using "$F5/test.tex" ,  /*
*/  replace type rstyle(tabular) head("\begin{tabular}{rrr}"  /*
*/  "\textit{INDUSTRY}&\textit{TURNOVER YEAR 1}&\textit{TURNOVER YEAR 10}\\\\") /*
*/  foot("\end{tabular}")

//3. using tabout//
cap which tabout
if _rc ssc install tabout, replace
tabout nace using "$F5/test2.tex", replace sum c(max turnover1 max turnover10) /* 
*/  f(0c 0c 0c) ptotal(none) style(tex) lines(double) h1(| Turnover)   /* 
*/   topf(top.tex) botf(bot.tex) 

**You can get the top and bottom tex files & more on tabout from:  http://www.ianwatson.com.au/stata/tabout_tutorial.pdf
restore        

********************!
Watch for message wrapping.  I'm sure there's a faster way to prep the data for use with -listtex- , but this seems to work.

The variable Industry has labels, which I would like to be displayed instead of the numerical values, and I'd also like to suppres the row names of the matrix (r1, r2 ... ). I have the feeling that creating a matrix to export variable values to latex is a somewhat roundabout way. Is it possible to use listtex to list values of the same variable but for different years in separate columns?
