A pivot table is a table of summary data. In MS Excel it is quite good 
for quick interactive summarization of data by grouping variables.

To get a particular table result into Stata, you can import as Excel
by giving the correct sheet and cell coordinates and it should work fine.

I did a little test on my versions of Excel (Mac 2011) and Stata (Mac 12.1)
and it worked fine.
