Nick,

Thank you, -catplot- is easier to use than -graph bar- because
several steps can be skipped. Another advantage is that -catplot-
works with numeric values and strings.

However, with -graph bar yvars, over(varname) stack- it is possible
to stack the bars in a specific order by varying the order in which
the yvars are listed.

. sysuse auto
. tab rep78, gen(rep)
. graph bar rep3 rep4 rep5 rep1 rep2, over(foreign) stack percent

Can the same be accomplished with -catplot-?

Thank you.
