Other postings have overtaken this. I read your post as 6 observations for each quarter. It seems you mean 6 observations, one at each quarter, which would be easier. The word "each" is treacherous, even to native English speakers, or people in the USA. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk René Geppert Here you go. var1 var2 Quarter .485 28.37 1 .637 25.14 2 1.131 24.62 3 1.364 19.57 4 1.526 3.94 5 1.791 3.56 6 Nick Cox schrieb: > Please give a minimal example of a relevant dataset. > > Nick > n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk > > René Geppert > > 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.
