By "excel" I guess you mean the proprietary software MS Excel.

By "tabout" I presume you mean -tabout- (SSC).

If you look at -collapse- you can produce a reduced dataset containing
sums which you can then export in a variety of forms. The calculation
of percentages can clearly be done beforehand.
