For users of Stata 9, I have an ado that handles problems such as these.
Its original purpose was to generate compact tables for reporting multiple
response data, but I've generalized it to be useful for many similar

The syntax to generate your table, for example, would look like:

. pcent var2-var7, inc(mean) by(var1)


. pcent var2-var7, inc(mean) by(var1) out(var2_7Xvar1.txt)

would create a tab delimited file of the output (called "var2_7Xvar1.txt")
suitable for importing and manipulating by another program, such as Excel.

Anyone interested in trying it out can send me an email and I'll give you a
copy.  If there is sufficient interest, I'll make it more generally
available through the usual channels.

Hi everyone,
I'm still having trouble getting stata to layout descriptive tables the way
I need them. Is there any manual that would have tables & instructions on
how to create them? I'm having a hard time figuring it out from the regular
stata manuals & help. I'm trying to get a table of means for multiple
variables by�category�of variable1�and total:
���������� var1=A var1=2 var1=3 total
