This is going a very long way round, like going to Toronto via Chicago. You want to push stuff through -tabstat- so that it can then be pushed through -tabstatmat- (user-written, from SSC; you should explain this according to Statalist advice) so that you can then .... 

What is the need? To get from a dataset to a new dataset of means? Use -collapse- and get there in one step.

I was searching for a way to save -tabstatmat- output as a matrix so
that I can transform it as data. Any suggestion would be much
Lets consider the Auto data:

. sysuse auto, clear
. tabstat price, by(foreign) stat(mean) save
Summary for variables: price
     by categories of: foreign (Car type)
 foreign |      mean
Domestic |  6072.423
 Foreign |  6384.682
   Total |  6165.257

What I want to achieve is to save the following output to a matrix (or
any other way to make it the data) 
. tabstatmat price
Domestic:mean  6072.4231
 Foreign:mean  6384.6818
   Total:mean  6165.2568

Thanks in advance.
