I am trying to find if there is a betterquicker way to do what I am doing

My data is as follows

id	name	dt	procedure
1	xxx	2000	eyesurgery
1	xxxx	2001	eyesurgery
1	xxxx	2002	hernia
1	xxxx	2009	hernia
2	yyy	2010	hernia
2	yyy	2011	cardiacsurgery
2	yyy	2012	eyesurgery
2	yyy	2012	eyesurgery

I am interested in making a excel file or  a stata dataset as follows for

id	name	eyesurgery_2000	eyesurgery_2001.......eyesyrgery2012
1	xxxx		1		1		0
2	yyyy		0		0		2

I use tabulate, copy it into excel file (use import wizard) and then
import into stata
Is there a quicker way??

Thank you ,
Yours Sincerely,
