Dear Nick:
Thank you very much for responding.
I have already tried the syntax you recommended.
. scatter y x, by(group)
My problem is below:
My group is "state."
I have a dataset which contains 50 states; therefore, I had 50 state scatter
plots in one graphic when I use this syntax.
Now, I want to only have 10 state scatter plots in one graphic and I will
have five graphics containing all 50 states in the U.S.
How can I do 10 state scatter plots in one graphic from my 50 state dataset?
Thank you.

Dear Patricia: 

Please do not send HTML to the list, just plain text. 

You say you have a problem, but you do not say what the problem is, 
for example in terms of code you tried that did not do what you wanted. 

Let me guess that you have 10 groups of states indicated in 
a variable -group-. 

. scatter y x, by(group) 

is then one possibility.

When I use Stata syntax to run graphics, I encountered a problem. 
I have data for 50 states in the U.S.
I want to create five graphics. Each graphic contains 10 state two-way
scatter plots.
