Thanks for the help with my beamplots! I have another question on order. I
want to create 9 overlaid two-way area graphs by experiment and treatment.
 
twoway (area all dos, sort) (area dead dos, sort), by(experiment treatment)

Experiment is either 1 or 2. Treatment is C, L, M, H, E. So the groups are
1C. 2C, 1L, 2L, 1M, 2M etc. There is no group 1H.

The syntax above gives me the 9 plots ordererd like this:

1C, 1E, 1L
1M, 2C, 2E
2H, 2L, 2M

But what I want is :
1C, 2C
1L, 2L
1M, 2M
  , 2H
1E, 2E

Is this arrangement possible?

Thanks,
AC
