Thanks David and Scott for your suggestions but both do not render my problem.

The thing is that if I draw a histogram of var>190 I do not want the percent to add up to 100, since 100 percent is var without beeing restricted to be >190. So var>190 may be only 25 Percnet and so the histogram should show a scale that adds the bars to 25 Percent.

Any further suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to draw a histogram (option: percent). - hist var, percent -

If I attempt to draw the histogram just over a range of the var, i.e. – hist var if var<190, percent – the range of <190 is taken as 100% and y-axis is scaled accordingly.

How can I draw a histogram over the rage var<190 leaving where the entire range of var is taken as the percent base.

Any suggestions?
