My appologies
The problem was, that I plotted my bar graph using one variable and an -over( )- option and could'nt figure out how to make the "lookofbar_options" color one of the bars in a different color. Thanks to Roger Newson I turned to twoway graphs and was able to solve my problem wiht overlaying two graphs.

It would be easier for other list members to help if you could
provide more information about the kind of graph you are trying to
create. What command do you type to make the graph? Let's assume you
make a regular bar graph like this:

. sysuse auto, clear
. graph bar mpg trunk turn

In this case you could use the -bar()- option to assign colors to
individual bars.

. graph bar mpg trunk turn, bar(1, bcolor(navy)) bar(2,
bcolor(maroon)) bar(3, bcolor(navy))

This is explained in -whelp graph bar- under "lookofbar_options".

Dear all,

I have a bar graph and I'd like to change a color of one bar (or
use sth similar to show its relative location compared to other bars).
Would appreciate your suggestions
