st: RE: St: problems with gridlines in Stata 8.2 graphs
Not having your data, I can only try to
reproduce some simplified analogue of this
(I presume, perhaps incorrectly, that title
and many other options are secondary to the
question, although the implication of
your posting appears otherwise).
Whatever I do, the gridlines form background,
just as one would wish.
With your choice of
grid-lines are bound to make up
a fair fraction of the total visual
impact; or, otherwise put, you get what asked for.
I take it that these are weekly
data and that you want to identify quarters.
Perhaps half-years instead?
