It depends a little bit on what sort of tables you like to produce. If you 
talk about output from any sort of regression models -estout- will be your 
friend. Type

. ssc install estout

and read the help-file on -estout-.

If you talk about crosstabulation or arbitrary collections of statistics,  the 
case is probably somewhat more complicated. A good starting point than is to 
read Roger Newsons Handout from the Stata Users' Group Meeting 2004 in 

 "From datasets to resultssets in Stata," United Kingdom Stata Users' Group 
Meetings 2004 16, Stata Users Group. (

He describes a general approach to produce any output you like, and offers 
some very usefull ancillary-programs.
