Hi all-

I am attempting a twoway with a ",
by(<date_variable>)" option.  My date variable is
formatted with %tmmY, yet the subtitles of the suplots
are numbers.  Here is a very basic example where the
twoway command has the numerical subtitles.  Is there
a way to fix this?  

. desc dtm

              storage  display     value
variable name   type   format      label      variable
label
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
dtm             float  %tmmY                  



. list

     +------------+
     |   dtm   v1 |
     |------------|
  1. | Feb05    1 |
  2. | Mar05    1 |
     +------------+

. twoway (scatter v1 v1), by(dtm)

Thanks!

Zach
