That appears to work great -- thanks Rich Scott Merryman wrote:

I would like to automatically add, either as a bar label or under the group id (e.g., the "5", etc. if I typed -graph bar foreign, over(rep78)- for the auto data), the numerator and denominator for this proportion (mean) -- is there a way to do that? Note that I do know that I can do this with graph edit; however, I need to produce dozens of these graphs so I want an automatic way to do it. Thanks, Rich Goldstein
