I've no idea what a "pivot table" is, but if the structure below....

My previous example in was:
Rowvar  colvar1 colvar2
                1       2       1       2       3
                n C%    n C%    n C%    n C%    n C%

In order to avoid weeks of Stata programming etc. we decided to generate those tables in SPSS.

You could likely achieve it using Ian Watson's -tabout- (available on
SSC) or likely achieve it from first principles using
-contract-/-collapse- in conjunction with some -append-/-merge- and a
small amount of programming.

Although of course I've assumed that you know how to do this sort of
programming, and if not it may well take "weeks", but next time it
will take you far less, and eventually it will become second nature if
you use Stata regularly.
