.

What you wanted is to have your times (ordered correctly) over your variables, not your variables grouped by time, which is what you got. The help file for graph bar talks about what you can expect under different requests. You have to scroll way down to ``remarks'', specifically where it gives pictures of year and division.

This is probably a really simple thing, but I've looked for an answer and
I can't find one.

I want to create a bar graph displaying several variables over 3 different
time periods. If I type:
graph hbar (sum) variable1 variable2 variable3 variable4, over(timeperiod)

then I get a graph that displays all the variable values for timeperiod1 clustered together, then all the variable values for timeperiod2, and then
for timeperiod3.

What I actually want is a graph the displays the variable1 values over the three time periods, THEN the variable2 values over the three time periods,
then  the variable3 values... and so on, all on one graph.

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks
