Hi again,
More questions about beamplot (which produces really nice plots by the way).
How can I order the y-axis so that tank goes: 5 1 6 2 7 3 8 9 4 instead of 1
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 

I have tried the following
generate order = 1 if tank == 5
replace order = 2 if tank== 1
replace order = 3 if tank== 6
replace order = 4 if tank == 2
replace order = 5 if tank== 7
replace order = 6 if tank== 3
replace order = 7 if tank== 8
replace order = 8 if tank== 9
replace order = 9 if tank== 4

beamplot pre_l, over(tank) ytitle("") xtitle ("Pre-spawning length (cm) ")
by(sex)

Thanks!
AC
