Can you produce this with the auto.dta data set? For example: sysuse auto,clear graph bar mpg, over(head) text( 20 25 "50_25" 20 50 "50_50" 20 59 "50_59") bar(1, fcolor(gs15)) the added text is where it is expected. Also, why would you expect "50_59" to be above "50_50" since you are only changing the x coordinate?
