I think you will find that my example did exactly that - the bars in the histogram for price<=12000 add up to about 96% (the other 4% that are >12000 being ignored). Take the more extreme example of plotting if price>12000 if you need more convincing... sysuse auto, clear twoway__histogram_gen price, percent gen(h x) local w=x[2]-x[1] gen zero=0 if !missing(h) label var zero "Percent" twoway rbar h zero x if x>12000, barw(`w') David -----Original Message----- From: Hans J.

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. Hans Hans J.
