If you find yourself doing this a lot, you can use a program to generate the label string. Something like this:

program faclbl, rclass
syntax anything(name=numlist id="Label List") , ///
[ Factor(int 100) local(string) ]

numlist "`numlist'"
foreach v in `r(numlist)' {
local newlbl `"`newlbl' `v' "`=`v'*`factor''""'
}

return local label `newlbl'
if "`local'"!="" c_local `local' `newlbl'
end


Then you could type

. faclbl -6[2]6 , local(xlab)

. graph twoway scatter .... , xlabel(`xlab') ...

It's a rather workmanlike option, isn't it? Still, if that's the best
there is within the confines of Stata 8.2, then fair enough. Thanks very
much.
