i just installed stata8 on my pc and noticed i have a
problem with the graph command.

these are examples of what happens (command lines
followed by stata output):

. graph bar (mean) tt
variable bar not found
r(111);


in other words it looks like stata8 is behaving as
stata7. note that the following command works fine:
twoway scatter tt year,connect(L)
Yes. I suspect you've nailed the problem on the head with your last comment.
It appears that, though you have version 8 installed, you have the command interpreter (inadvertently?) set to version 7.

an easy check: use the -version- command, without an argument.

If Stata displays "version 7.0"

then type
version 8
