st: Problematic twoway lineplot with -by- |

Hi, listers I'm trying to create a twoway graph using two line graphs, and have it split into groups using -by- _on_only_one_of_the_graphs_. I'm finding this a bit tricky to pull off, and I've cooked up an example below which illustrates the problem. My goal is to have graph 2 included on each of the plots in graph 1, resulting in a graph with two plots having two lines each. Instead, I get a graph with four plots in it, and only a single line per plot. Is there any way to produce the graph that I want without rearranging my data? Hope you can help, -Steinar Example : // Create dataset clear set obs 40 gen id = int((_n-1)/10)+1 gen group = (id>=3) + 1 bysort id: gen time = _n replace time = time -.5 if id == 4 gen value = uniform() bysort id (time): replace value = value[_n-1] + uniform() if _n > 1 // Create plots // Graph 1 (using by) twoway (line value time if group==1, sort by(id)) graph rename graph1 // Graph 2 (not using by) twoway (line value time if group==2, sort) graph rename graph2 // Graph 3 (Attempt to merge the two graphs together, getting graph 2 on each of the plots in graph 1) twoway (line value time if group==1, sort by(id)) (line value time if group==2, sort) graph rename graph3 * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
