Hi Anisa: You've introduced new vars (e.g., "feedback") that you haven't described before, so I'm not sure what your new code is trying to do. -tabout- cannot "nest" in other identifiers on the rows in the exported table. You can add it to the "condition" label with: ************ bys Condition: g row = string(_n) replace Condition = Condition + " " + row ************ and now the row number would print in the condition label and you would get one row in the -tabout- table per Condition/row pair. If you put some sort of delimiter (like pipe "|") between condition and row in your label, you could separate it in post-processing in Excel (text to columns feature) or Stata by making the "|" a column break. If "Row" is just the observation number in your dataset for each individual answer/response, then why use -tabout-? Just -export excel- or -outsheet- the data to a spreadsheet since you don't need to tabulate anything. That is, if you take the table in your last message and make "Answer" the cross-variable (assuming "Row" is, as you depict, not duplicated ) using -tabout- you would get: +------------------------------------------------+ | quest | cond | row | freq_YES | freq_NO | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 0 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 1 | 2 | 1 | 0 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 1 | 3 | 0 | 1 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 1 | 4 | 0 | 1 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 1 | 5 | 0 | 1 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 0 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 2 | 2 | 0 | 1 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 2 | 3 | 0 | 1 | |----------+----------+-----+----------+---------| | 1 | 2 | 4 | 0 | 1 | +------------------------------------------------+ Which isn't a very helpful tabulation. If none of the above are correct, please show a snippet of your actual data and what you want the -tabout- to show. You keep changing the question and data description. - Eric __ Eric A.
