Dear Steve,

Yes, there is options depending on the type of graph you are working with.

For example, suppose you are interested in scatter plots (var 1 vs var2)
and have 40 groups (var3), so that your aim is to obtain a scatter plot
for each of the 40 groups, but all in only one collum (one below the
other).

You can type:

scatter var1 var2, by(var3, cols(1))

This will be also valid for other types of graphs( pies, histograms, among
others).

If you are working with a program that does not have the option -by-, your
task will not be straighforward. However, you can use -graph combine-:
findit graph combine (too see further information).
