```One way to do this is with -tabm-. -tabm- is part of -tab_chi- on SSC.

Here is an example:

. set obs 100
obs was 0, now 100

. forval j = 1/5 {
2. gen my`j' = ceil(5 * runiform())
3. }

. tabm my*

Is there an easy way to create a table of multiple Likert-variables,
looking something like this:

Rows: Var_, ..., Var_n
Columns: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (i.e. the Likert-scale)

Cells would be frequencies or percentages.

tab1-command is not of any use as I have so many variables: The idea is
to get one long table with six columns (Likert scales plus var names)
and as many rows as there are variables (+1).
