Scott - 
Well, at least this cuts down the line length even though it requires a
series of commands...anyway thanks for spending time on this. When I finally
broke down and got Stata 8 , I justified it on the grounds that it was for
analysis only and that I wouldn't spend hours trying to make pretty graphs -
so much for that!

Using the auto dataset, this will label the odd numbered set of bars.
Unfortunately, the even set of bars have a "." label


forv num = 1(1)5 {
 local xlabel "`xlabel' `num' . "
 }

forv num2 = 1(2)5 {
 local xlabel "`xlabel' `num2' `num2' "
 }

di "`xlabel'"
graph bar (mean) headroom gear_ratio, over(rep78, relabel(`xlabel' ))
