Hi all,

I have a simple "graph twoway, by()" question:

When I type:

(1) twoway (line gdp year),  by(country),

Stata creates a graph with plots for all countries and a range for the
x axis starting in 2000 though the minimum of the variable year is
2001!


When I type:

(2) twoway (line gdp year),  xsc(r(2001 2006)),

Stata creates a graph with a range for the x axis starting in 2001.

However, when I combine (1) and (2), i.e.

(3) twoway (line gdp year), by(country, xsc(r(2001 2006)))

Stata tells me: "option xsc() not allowed" r(198)!

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!

Best,

Markus
