By "it doesn't work" do you mean it doesn't typeset (if so, what is the error?)?  What code did you try that failed to work?  If my comment below don't work, we probably need more detail to understand what's going on here.

Below is a beamer .tex file example that includes a large tabout (BTW, tabout is from SSC) table (created from Ian Watson's help file examples) inserted into a Beamer presentation.
You may want to make sure you've got all the right packages referenced (tabularx, booktabs, etc) and also you might try using the [shrink] option for your frame and the [compress] option for your document (see below).

Here is a link to the .tex file in my Dropbox:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/428249/example_template_with_tabout.pdf
Here is the resulting PDF:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/428249/example_template_with_tabout.pdf

The .tex code is:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%begin example
\documentclass[10pt, compress, red]{beamer}
\usepackage{ pgf , epstopdf, graphicx, url, hyperref, amsmath, tabularx, booktabs}
\usetheme{Berlin}
\AtBeginSection{
\begin{frame}[shrink]
\frametitle{Contents}
\tableofcontents[currentsection]
\end{frame}
}
\title{A  \LaTeX Template}
\author{author here }

\begin{document}
\frame{\titlepage}
\frametitle{Contents}
\tableofcontents[currentsection]
\end{frame}

\section{Placeholder: My Title Goes Here}
\begin{frame}[shrink]{Placeholder Title Goes Here}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%end example
