Well, this code is close in spirit to yours, and does work, so there has to be a material difference that let`s yours fail and not mine:

**
sysuse tsline1, clear
tsset lags
tw (tsline ar) (tsline ma)/*
*/ if tin(40,160)
**

I suspect that you have to specify the arguments to -tin()- differently, as shown in -help f_tin-.

Thanks Martin, I tried putting it before the comma but I get

invalid syntax
r(198);

Apart from any other problems in your code, the -if-
statement always goes
before the comma separating the command from its
options...

 twoway (tsline Women) (tsline Men)/*
*/ (tsline child) if tin(Mar 2003, Mar 2008),/*
*/ title(Women Children and Men,size(small)) /*
*/note(Source: IBC , size(vsmall))
