One way is to create a variable ordered from low to high across the X-axis (e.g. 1, 2, 3, ... etc.) in the physical order you want them. Then you can relabel them in your graph statements using the xlabel option: xlabel(1 "5" 2 "1" 3 "6" 4 "2" 5 "7" 6 "3" 7 "8" 8 "9" 9 "4") Best, Alan On 7/2/07, Knag Anne-Christine <anne-christine.knag@imr.no> wrote:

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!
