There are many ways to do this using different ways of storing results, (see "help estimates", and the -estout- program from SSC). However, -postfile- may be what you are looking for, here is an example: sysuse auto.dta, clear tempname memhold tempfile ttests postfile `memhold' str12 name pval using `ttests' foreach var of varlist price mpg rep78 headroom trunk { ttest `var', by(foreign) post `memhold' ("`var'") (r(p)) } postclose `memhold' clear use `ttests' . list +---------------------+ | name pval | |---------------------| 1. | price .6801851 | 2. | mpg .0005254 | 3. | rep78 8.31e-08 | 4. | headroom .0110486 | 5. | trunk .00166 | +--------------------- Tim On Sun, May 8, 2011 at 6:16 PM, Jean-Marie Meier <jean-marie.meier@web.de> wrote: > Dear Stata list users, > > for my data set I want create several tables with descriptive statistics.
