Generally, I would like to learn the equivalent of SAS's "out=dataset" option. Specifically, I'm working on descriptive tables for a report right now. I'm running proportions on categorical variables, and I would like stata to save those proportion estimates as a new dataset that I can quickly and easily use to make graphs. In SAS I would just type:

Proc Freq data=data1;
	tables agecat / out = agefregs;

Sorry to ask such a basic question, but I can't seem to find this information with any of the google searches I've tried.

You probably want to look at -postfile- and -statsby- but they are not really equivalent to out=. Not worse, but certainly different.
