<> No need to apologize! Your question is not trivial at all, and David`s answer does not necessarily take you all the way to your solution. The help file shows how to rearrange the -over()- options, but your problem is that you want several variables shown separately over time. Despite some effort, I could not find an easy solution for your problem. For rearrangement of your dataset, look at -reshape- and -xpose-...

März 2009 14:30 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: Graph bar using the over option Does this mean I have to rearrange my data set? At the moment column 1 contains my 'timeperiod' variable and then the other columns are my other variables, with a total of three lines in my table. Is the answer to have the timeperiods as different columns and the variables as different rows? If so, is there a nice simple way of doing this (I have quite a few variables) Sorry if this seems a stupid question - I am a Stata novice!
