No, or at least not to me. In the following example: sysuse auto,clear graph hbar mpg, over(fore) name(gr1,replace) graph hbar mpg, over(rep) name(gr2,replace) you would want the bars in the two graphs to be the same size? One way would be add empty categories so both graphs had the same number of categories: sysuse auto,clear graph hbar mpg, over(fore) name(gr1,replace) graph hbar mpg, over(rep) name(gr2,replace) set obs 77 replace fore = -5 in 75 replace fore = .5 in 76 replace fore = 5 in 77 graph hbar mpg, over(fore, relabel( 1 `"" " " ""' 3 `"" " " ""' 5 `"" " " ""')) /// name(gr3,replace) Scott * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
