Doug might like to use my -regaxis- package, downloadable from SSC,
inputs one or more variables and/or values which must be in the axis
and creates a set of axis labels as output in a macro. The package
2 programs, -regaxis- for regular linear axes and -logaxis- for regular
logarithmic axes. In Stata, type
ssc describe regaxis
to find out more.
I hope this helps.
