What about this:
* begin example 
sysuse sp500, clear
tsset date
local begin = mdy(5,1,2001)
local end = mdy(6,1,2001)
twoway function y = 1400, /*
*/ range(`begin' `end') /*
*/ color(gs12) recast(area)  /*
*/ tsline open, clstyle(solid)
* end example 
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see :

Hope this helps,
Maarten
