Hi Nick I got a chance to test the mdotplot code you wrote last week and the output was a bit different than what I was expecting. The three variables (mdint_bioc, mdint_bioc_s, median948) were individually plotted in their own little graph within a 2 x 2 array of graphs, as no doubt was directed by the graph, combine command in the ado. I was wondering if it was possible to display each variable as a column in the same graph field, as is seen when you run the standard dotplot with multiple variables and no marker labels. The marker labels displayed correctly in the code you provided, by the way, but the end result seemed to be the same as if I had made three separate single variable dotplots and then combined them. If that was your intention, then thankyou, it automates that process. If you were intending them to have a similar representation as the multivariable dotplot, then the outcome was different. If you can't spare the time to tweak it, then thanks for pointing me along the way. Perhaps the approaches of overlaid 2-way scatterplots could be followed (nesting the graph statements?) along with some code about relative placement of the columns, depending on the number of variables being plotted? -JW -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox Sent: Thursday, October 28, 2004 4:58 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: RE: Bad dotplot command?
