I tried your suggestion but it does not seem to work...most likely I'm doing something wrong.
I have the following toy dataset:
+------------+
| year qty |
|------------|
1. | 1997 23 |
2. | 1998 28 |
3. | 1999 35 |
4. | 2000 15 |
+------------+

and I want the shaded bands to go from feb97 to dec97 and feb1999 to july1999.

Any help is appreciated.
Thankd,
MA

Say you want that band in 2006, than within the -twoway function- command
use the option range(2006 2006.25)

Hope this helps,
Maarten
