If you don't care about interaction terms, use -tab-

 . tab myvar, gen(myvar_)

will generate variables myvar_1-myvar_n, one dummy for
each value of -myvar-.

cheers,

Dear all Stata users,
I just discovered the command xi to generate dummies, but I also
noticed that by default it omits one of the values. This is obvious on
one hand, but on the other hand, does anyone of you knows a way to
tell Stata to generate dummies for all groups and to omit none of
them?

Thank to all of you in advance,
Regards,
Emanuele.
