Hi Everyone, 

I need help with exporting results from tabulate command by using putexcel command in survey setting 

I have a survey datasets with a string variable.I am trying to perform oneway tabulation and use putexcel 
My goal is to put the various string values (for the string variable) in column A and their weighted count in column B in excel sheet. 

To demonstrate it, I am using the nhanes dataset and the code is as follows 

***************code Start*********************************
webuse nhanes2f, clear
decode race, gen(s_race)  // we generate a string varaible  for demonstration purpose 
svy, subpop(sex): tabulate s_race, count  missing format(%11.3g) // I wanted to  use tabulate s_race 

*	Now I am trying to use the estimated results to put into the excel cells 
mat x = e(b)'
mat y=e(Rows)'
putexcel A1=("STRING_VAR")  B1=("COUNT") A2=matrix(e(Rows)') B2=matrix (e(b)') using results , modify 
***************code End*********************************

* however , I get the excel file with following results. 

1		0.095615161
2		0.025368614
3		0.879016225

However What I am looking for is something like 

Black		        Weighted count of Black
White		Weighted count of White	
Other		Weighted count of Other	

Can anyone of the stata gurus in this forum help me getting the desired results.  I thank you very much for your time and effort. 

Thank you, 
Yours Sincerely, 
Anwar Dudekula
