Another way to get closer to what Richard requires would be to use Nick
Cox's -catplot- routine, downloadable via SSC. Using this would allow him
to do something like:

. catplot bar continuousvar, over(discretevar) sort percent asyvars

But even this doesn't quite do what Richard wants, which is to bar-graph
seven _individual_ variables which all have (presumably) the same three
categories _without_ having to specify an -over()- option. Like Richard, I
couldn't quite crack it.
