st: Tempvars with ylabel
Is it possible to use tempvars (or some other Stata variable) to specify
values with the -ylabel- command? I have tried

data that varies such that `Mean' could be different at each run of the
file. I use -graph twoway line `Mean'- to generate a reference line on
my graph and it works as expected. It just doesn't seem quite right to
me that I can use the temporary variable to draw the graph, but not to
Thank you for your assistance.
