BTW, if you wanted to add the labels to "Condition" in the -tabout- table as you do in your example, then add this code into your do-file just before you run the loop I gave you:

************ add in to prev. code example
levelsof Condition, loc(c)
foreach v in `c' {
	loc j `" `j' `v' "- Condition `v'" "'
	}
	
lab def jj `j', modify
lab val Condition jj
ta Condition
************
