This topic has been dealt with many times on the list. See for example:

You can however experiment with full colours. A useful tool to select appropriate color combinations can be found here:

```Dear all,
thank you very much for your incredible help!
I need my graphs to look good printed black and white.
The bars need to be filled out, idealy with some black
white pattern (e.g. dots, vertical lines) or even a
clear gray scale might work.

I am running into the following problem:
. graph bar (asis) cov02 cov05 , ///
```
``` over(stratum, relabel(1 "Tirana" 2 "Coastal" 3
```
```"Mountain" 4 "Central" 5 "Total") ) ///
```
```legend(label(1 "Coverage in 2002") label(2 "Coverage
```
```in 2005") ) ytitle("percent of individuals") ///
```
```blabel(bar, pos(inside) format(%9.0f) color(white))
```
```bar(1 bfc(gs0)) bar(2 bfc(gs50)) ///
```
```note("Source: LSMS 2002 and 2005.")
```
```invalid bar number, 1 bfc(gs0)
invalid syntax
invalid syntax
invalid syntax
invalid syntax

Any ideas how I hsould do it? How about a fill in
pattern?

Thank you in advance!
Best,
Anna
