StataCorp decided not to include this directly
in Stata 8. 

However, what you want is really just
a kind of scatter plot and can be achieved after 
a (temporary) restructure of your data. 

Alternatively, you can use -onewayplot- from 
SSC to avoid thinking about that restructuring. 

. ssc inst onewayplot 

will install the program on your system. 

In your case, 

. onewayplot var1 var2 var3 

would be a good start. With the auto
data, 

. onewayplot mpg turn trunk
. onewayplot mpg turn trunk, stack variablelabels 

are a couple of examples. The help file 
says much more, including a comparison with
-gr7, oneway- and -dotplot-.
