You want to take account of this: http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=gr0019

The fact that you cannot use -tin()- simultaneously with -title()- or -note()- suggests to me that something fishy is going on...

**
sysuse tsline1, clear
tsset lags
tw (tsline ar) (tsline ma)/*
*/ if tin(40,160), /*
*/ title(My Graph) note(MY NOTE)
**

This works perfectly for me.

I do not understand what you are trying to say about -tab-, either...

I have figure it out now. I can't check the example that you sent as I have no Stata install in this computer but in another one with no internet connection.

The "if tin" option doesn't work if I type title and note. Probably similar to the tab command: "tab total if women" is possible but not "tab total if women, row col" but "tab women, col row"

In any case with only if tin and I dont get an error now but the X axis starts still from january.

To change values in X axis, I need to use tlabel:

twoway (tsline Women) (tsline Men) (tsline child), title(Women Children and Men,size(small)) note(Source: IBC , size(vsmall)) tlabel(2003m3 2004m3 2005m3 2006m3 2007m3)

thanks for your help.

Gaby

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-.
