I don't understand your data structure (e.g. what are conditions?) and why -tabout- (from SSC, BTW) does not work.  Providing a snippet of your dataset and the command you tried would help me provide a better answer.

Based just on your sample -tab- command, you can transform that to -tabout- with something like:

cap rm "test.xls"
levelsof question, local(ques_numbers)
foreach n in `ques_numbers' {
   tabout condition answer using "test.xls", append  ///
      c(freq row) h1(Question `n' )
((The looping part is doing the -bysort question- part of your example -tab- command.))
