If you're not doing so already, you might want to use -twoway tsline- to
graph your time-series data. Then, you can use the -format- suboption
within the -tlabel- option to format the labels on the time axis (x-axis).
. webuse sp500
. tsset date
. twoway tsline high, tlabel(, format(%dM/CY))
This will give you labels with month and year instead of day/month/year.
The -format- option will also work with labels in other -twoway- commands
if you don't want to use -twoway tsline-:
. twoway scatter high date, xlabel(, format(%dM/CY))
