Clive,

1.  This is a panel data set with 140 unique ids so -twoway line- will 
produce 140 lines per variable which will be rather messy, maybe even 
violent.

2. Why are you manually specifying the ylabel option when -mylabels- 
will do it for you?

3.  In your ylabel option, should it not be: ylabel(1 "100" .75 ....) 
not ylabel(.1 "100" .75 ....). 

4. Does this produce the graph you want:

use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r8/abdata.dta,clear
collapse (mean) emp wage, by(year)
replace emp= emp/100
replace wage= wage/100
mylabels 0(25)100, myscale(@/100) local(label100)

twoway line emp wage year , xtitle("") ///
  ylabel(`label100', angle(0)) ///
  clpattern(dash) scheme(s1mono) 

Hope this helps,
Scott
