Thanks Nick, Clive, and Scott for your collective solution to this
problem.

Taking the idea from Clive of using -catplot- and from
Scott that a data restructure is needed, another way is along
these lines. First we create an example dataset as did 
Scott 

clear
set obs 30
qui forv i = 1/7 {
 	gen c`i' = 1
 	replace c`i' = 2 if uniform() <.4
 	replace c`i' = 3 if uniform() <.3
}

Then 

gen id = _n 
reshape long c , i(id) 
catplot bar  c _j 

There is no need to get into file manipulations, 
as all can be done in place.
