Thanks, Scott. Honest, I did spend a couple of hours finding a solution.
I didn't realize that I can do this something like this. I admit that I
am not the smartest person I know, but I must say that STATA
documentation on graphic is not the easiest piece to read and learn
from.

Regards,

NL

graph hbar (mean) promoted, over(race) over(paygrade) /// 
ylabel(.10 "10%" .20 "20%" .30 "30%" .40 "40%" .50 "50%" .60 "60%" ///
.70 "70%" .80 "80%" .90 "90%" 1 "100%" )

Hope this helps,
Scott
