My point is that I don't think you need to 
write a program at all. This should yield
to an existing command. Much of the terrain 
is surveyed in 

SJ-3-4  pr0011  . . . . . . . .  Speaking Stata: Problems with tables, Part II
        Q4/03   SJ 3(4):420--439 
        reviews three user-written commands (tabcount, makematrix,
        and groups) as different approaches to tabulation problems

SJ-3-3  pr0010  . . . . . . . .  Speaking Stata:  Problems with tables, Part I
        Q3/03   SJ 3(3):309--324 
        presents ways of preparing material for tabulation
