Dear Nick,

adding yaxis(1 2) was part of the solution, I only had yaxis(2) and axis(2) in my code. However, there is still a minor problem left:

gen mpg2=mpg/10

and then do this (i.e. just use the newly created mpg2 instead of mpg for the bars and divide the labels (i.e. the range) by 10 as well)

twoway bar mpg2 rep78, yaxis(1 2) yla(1.8(.2)2.8, axis(2)) || line mpg rep78, yla(20 30, axis(1))

STATA uses the same range of values for the left and right axis. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!!
Peter

Thx a lot, the yaxis(1 2) was the solution, I only had yaxis(2) and
axis(2)...!

What I would like to have is a "graph twoway" with a line plot and a bar plot. the line plot is supposed to use yaxis1, the bar plot is supposed to use yaxis2. at the same time, the bar plot is supposed to appear in the background (so that the lines appear on top of it). however, whatever I try it seems that the plots that use yaxis2 are always put on top of the others that use yaxis1... (which in my case means that the line plot is hidden behind the bars). Is there a solution? I'm sure there is.
