The files having been merged, this would seem to be something like . sort idnum . graph response R resistnc, by(idnum) total jitter(2) ylabel(0(2)10) c(.l) sy(oi) The key question thus appears to be what Dale tried with -merge- and why it didn't work. The only clue given here is that -resistnc- appears in different form for -idnum- 401.
