(sum) x y produces a graph of the sum of x and the mean of y. Perhaps what you want is equivalent to this dopey example using the auto data graph hbar (sum) length (sum) weight, over(foreign) asyvars stack over(rep78) I used -hbar- to make this example legible and in illustration of my prejudice that most bar charts are better off as horizontal, but the same point holds for -bar-. If you don't want sums for the two variables stacked on each other, you probably need to -reshape long- your data and use another -over()- option. "doesn't work" is, by the way, not clear in itself. I have an ongoing document based on Statalist postings which distinguishes about 20 different senses of "doesn't work". In particular, graph hbar (sum) length weight, over(foreign) asyvars stack over(rep78) is utterly legal and produces a graph. So, it seems that "doesn't work" means "does not do what I want" in your case. Your question sounds a good one but please make quite clear what the issue is. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk moleps islon EVerything is fine and dandy as long as I only need X OR Y stacked byP categorized by Z in two different graphs. The trouble is when I need both X AND Y stacked by P and categorised by Z in the same graph.
