I'm sorry for not being more specific, but it doesnt matter what I do.
I've tried using it on my original dataset using

. graph bar (mean) gcs_mottak, over(mors)
variable mors not found
r(111);

Next I've done both -list gcs_mottak mors, codebook gcs_mottak mors
-confirming that the variables are still there.

. graph bar (mean) gcs_mottak, over(mors)
variable mors not found
r(111);

. codebook mors gcs_mottak

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
mors
                                        RECODE of mors30
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                  type:  numeric (long)
                 label:  janei

                 range:  [0,1]                        units:  1
         unique values:  2                        missing .:  1/2164

            tabulation:  Freq.   Numeric  Label

                          1864         1  nei
                             1         .

                  type:  numeric (byte)

                 range:  [3,15]                       units:  1
         unique values:  13                       missing .:  1/2164

                  mean:   11.0666
              std. dev:   4.50606

           percentiles:        10%       25%       50%       75%       90%
                                 3         7        14        15        15


Then I've looked through the tutorials and clicked on almost all of them, eg


. gr_example2 grbar0b

-> graph bar (asis) tempjan, over(region)
variable _variables not found
r(111);

However different graph commands work as long as I dont use the -over- option.
The update swap was done, and I get the following

. update swap

    1.  Removing older backups

File C:\Program Files\Stata10\wmpstata.bin was not found, aborting swap.
r(601);


PS I was just browsing your (Svend Juul)  book "stata for health
researchers" for a solution when I got your response. Great book, but
I couldnt find the solution to my problem:-)
