1. You need to specify that the range() option is for the second yaxis: -yscale(range(0) axis(2)) - 2. Use -scatter- with the -mlabel()- option. For example: sysuse auto,clear collapse mpg trunk, by(rep) twoway bar mpg rep, yaxis(1) yscale(range(0) axis(1)) /// || line trunk rep , sort yaxis(2) yscale(range(0) axis(2)) /// || scatter mpg rep, mlabel(mpg) mlabpos(12) m(none) yaxis(1) /// || scatter trunk rep ,mlabel(trunk) mlabpos(3) m(none) yaxis(2) /// || ,legend(order(1 3)) Scott On Mon, Dec 8, 2008 at 1:45 PM, René Geppert <geppert.rene@googlemail.com> wrote: > Hi, I am using Stata/SE 10 for Windows. > > I generated a graph using the following (simplified) code: > > . twoway (bar var1 Quarter, yaxis(1) yscale(range(0))) (line var2 Quarter, > yaxis(2) ) > > I do so in order to obtain two y-axes (left and right hand side) with a > different scale.
