Hi,
Thanks for confirming what I suspected.
It looks like tab2 has the same unnecessary limitation.
Thanks also to Peter Lachenbruch for the additional info.

I may take this up with Statcorp.

I can see no logical reason at all. -tab1- is just a wrapper for
multiple calls to -tab-, as you know. It should support the same

You can check the situation in 12 for yourself by looking at

http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?tab1

and it is the same.

I doubt that any update will benefit 10.1, so you will need to clone
-tab1- and do it yourself!
