Scott,

Thanks for the explanation.  I should have thought of setting trace on to
figure it out.  I was puzzled by the "5" and couldn't see why/how the two
sets of double quotes worked. Your recursive use of `mytext' is quite also
interesting in this solution, especially since it starts out empty -which
also initially confused me.

Thanks for the macro lesson.

No, in this case I am using the -text()- option; the "5" specifies the
location on y-axis for the text boxes.

As Nick pointed out the the line appends stuff to the local macro as
it loops through the levels of rep78.

If you -set trace on- you can see work it through adding text to the
local macro:

- foreach l of local levels {
...
- local mytext "`mytext' 5 `l'   "`n'/`d'"  "
= local mytext " 5 1   "0/2"  "
- }
...
- local mytext "`mytext' 5 `l'   "`n'/`d'"  "
= local mytext " 5 1   "0/2"   5 2   "0/8"  "
- }
...
- local mytext "`mytext' 5 `l'   "`n'/`d'"  "
= local mytext " 5 1   "0/2"   5 2   "0/8"   5 3   "3/30"  "
...
...
