Thank you Nick, Vince, and Allan for answering my question. Following a suggestion from Nick, I found a solution with -twoway bar- which was good enough for me, albeit not what I have initially intended. twoway /// (bar hsatcc cnew, horizontal base(`min') blcolor(black) bfcolor(white)) /// (bar hsateu cnew, horizontal base(`min') blcolor(black) bfcolor(black)) /// (dot hsatagg cnew, horizontal base(`min')), /// legend(off) /// yline(29, lstyle(foreground)) /// ylab(1(1)28 30(1)33, valuelabel angle(horizontal) axis(1)) /// xtitle("") ytitle("") /// ysize(7) xlab(#5, grid) exit That is, I designed a categorical variable (cnew) to order the countries along the vertical axis. I left one category empty in this cnew which gives me space between the dot-plot part and the bar-blot part, In this space I ploted a line in the foreground. I did not follow Vince's suggestion. The graphs has to be inserted into a Word document which has to be sent to a third party who is going to make a internet page from it. Visually alinging the plot regions seems to be not robust enough for this purpose. many regards uli > > I have two graphs, produced with -graph hbar- and want to > > combine them > > underneath each other in one single graph.
