Vince,

Thank you for your reply. Setting -lwidth()- does work but I had made
the mistake of trying only -lwidth(none)-, thinking this would remove
the line in the background color. One correction: -large- is not a
-linewidthstyle- and leads to an error message. Instead, the command
below works.

. graph bar mpg, graphregion(color(white) lwidth(medium))

Regards,

Friedrich Huebler
