I'd like for tab, table, etc to be able to specify the width of the left margin - so that they can be aligned on the page. Eg,

. sysuse auto
. tab make in 2

    Make and Model |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
-------------------+-----------------------------------
         AMC Pacer |          1      100.00      100.00
-------------------+-----------------------------------
             Total |          1      100.00

. tab foreign

   Car type |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
   Domestic |         52       70.27       70.27
    Foreign |         22       29.73      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |         74      100.00


This is very annoying when running lots of tabs on the same page - I often end up using my own version, just to get around this nusiance.

Thanks for the courtesy but the history of -tabnl- began and ended
with that post, at least as far as I am concerned, so you have missed
nothing.

One line is that this is typically three commands without using any
user-written stuff:

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. numlabel origin, add

. tab foreign

    Car type |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
0. Domestic |         52       70.27       70.27
  1. Foreign |         22       29.73      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
       Total |         74      100.00

. numlabel origin, remove

. tab foreign

    Car type |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
    Domestic |         52       70.27       70.27
     Foreign |         22       29.73      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
       Total |         74      100.00

but if you are saying that you want it as an option to -tabulate-,
that's presumably noted by StataCorp.

Add a "both" option to -tab- that displays both numeric values and

(There may be a more recent or authoritative version of -tabnl-
elsewhere, apologies if so. -findit tabnl- did not return anything.)
