Dear Vince and all. I appreciate Stata Corp.'s prompt action, but I'm afraid the peculiar behavior of -graph pie- still remains. It still includes unintended keys in the legend. Of course I recognized that the latest executable and ado-files (31 Oct 2003) are installed in my computer. With the following commands, can anybody replicate this behavior? . sysuse auto . graph pie, over(rep78) by(foreign) H.U.
