You can use the -format()- option to change the format, e.g.:

*---------- begin example ---------------
sysuse auto, clear
replace price = price*1000
table rep78, c(sum price)
table rep78, c(sum price) format(%11.0g)
*----------- end example ----------------
(For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see: )

Hope this helps,
