After much trial and error I have resolved my graphing problem. I'm unsure if this is a bug or just my misunderstanding however, the reason I could not get Stata to produce a box graph was my data labels. I had labeled the missing values .a "missing" .b "N/A". Producing a data set with out the missing value labels allows me to produce box graphs. Additionally labeling non missing values gave me no problems, and I could produce box graphs. Can anyone confirm this bug?

I am most interested in a box plot, though I have the same problem for bar graphs. Here are the results of trying to produce a box plot of oasm_agg followed by a tabulation of the same variable. Again, using the precursor data sets I was successfully able to produce a box plot of oasm_agg (the only changes to oasm_agg between the two files are labeling its missing values and relabeling the variable itself) . graph box oasm_agg invalid syntax invalid syntax invalid syntax invalid syntax invalid syntax r(198); . tab oasm_agg OASM | aggression | score | Freq.
