My diagnosis resembles David's. It seems you need a restructure first. 

Another way to do it: 

preserve 
collapse X1-X7, by(wave) 
reshape long X, i(wave) 
separate X, by(wave) 
graph bar X?, over(_j) 
restore

One solution is to reshape your data so you have wave and time as  
variables.

For example,

clear
set obs 70
egen panel = seq(), from(1) to(2) block(35)
gen id = _n
forvalues i = 1/7 {
	gen x`i' = invnorm(uniform()) + panel
}
reshape long x, i(id) j(time)
graph bar x, over(panel) over(time)

If you just wanted the x1-x7 labeled, you would need to have your data  
organized into two responses by panel, e.g., panel1 and panel2, and  
then issue

graph bar panel1 panel2, over(time)
