You can stack inside the -graph bar-

***
graph bar (mean) bp_before bp_after (sd) bp_before bp_after, over(sex) stack
***

but apart from that, can you rephrase your request? I really do not get what you want...

Thanks Martin,
It worked! However, I want to show the data as scatter plot with all the values are represented as dots plus an indicator bar beside every scatter blot to show the mean and sd. If it is not possible, then I can use your idea of combining box plot with scatter plot as the 2nd graph to the right. So, could you help with making scatter plot instead of graph bar (on the 2nd graph)
OR to add the sd value to the top of each graph bar as a whiskers?

Best regards,
Amr

Not sure how a scatter plot can have bars, but here is
something you could
try:


*************
sysuse bpwide, clear

graph box bp_before bp_after,/*
*/ over(sex) name(first, replace) /*
*/ nodraw
graph bar (mean) bp_before bp_after /*
*/(sd) bp_before bp_after, over(sex)/*
*/ name(second, replace) nodraw

gr combine first second
*************

Betreff: st: Making scatterplot instead of box plot...

Dear all,

I have simple problem with transforming a box plot of two
continuous
variables (y1 and y2) measured over 4 time points (x, with
x is a
categorical variable 0,1, 2, 3) into scatter graph with bar
indicating their
means and standard deviation. The rationale is a more
informative way of
data display.

I used the stata command (Stata 9.2): graph box y1 y2,
over(x)

Could you help me to display my data as scatterplot instead
of blind box?

Regards,
Amr
