I created a very simple dot plot with data regarding
12 variables over three groups. The graph looks ok
but, even though there are no values less than 100,
the x axis scale start at 0. I know that
yscale(range...) does not help to reduce the range,
and I tried to reach the goal using -if- but
unfortunately, I have to handle 12 variables together
and -graph- does not like use -if- with those. Even
though I tried with only one variable I was not able
to reduce the range from 0-200 to 100-200.
-------------------------------------------------

You may use the -exclude0- option to avoid the 0 to be included:

. sysuse auto
. graph dot mpg , over(foreign) exclude0 ylabel(15(5)30)

The option is described in -help graph dot-

Hope this helps
