Thanks Scott.  Closer...but with Dr. Ender's version you can't use an if exp
statement to limit the dataset you're feeding into the plot.  I've started
looking at the ado files in the do editor...perhaps programming is my out.

A possible third way.

Philip Ender's box command will plot several box plots together with, what I
believe, are the correct whiskers.

findit boxplot will bring it up.
