For those somewhat in the dark: 

0. -beamplot- is a program on SSC. 

1. As Maarten Buis implied, Anne-Christine's problem is with 
her -graph twoway- syntax. -graph twoway-, underlying -beamplot-, sees 

xlabel(0 (100) -800))

and parses that into 

xlabel(0 (100) -800) 

and 

)

It can make no sense of ")" by itself. ")" is, of course, just
a typo. 

2. There is thus no problem with -beamplot-. You may use -xla()- 
freely to get what you want.
