Re: st: Remove day (but keep month and year) from x-axis
This will work
twoway tsline high, tlabel(, format(%dm-CY))
However, I suggest you try <help format> or consult the Stata manuals for further info on formats.
p.s. By the way, what is your actual name?
>Thanks. That was a great help. One more question: what if I just want the first three letters for each month and the last two numbers for the year? (e.g. Jan94)
