<> " I think this is closer to what was asked for." I took the original request "(e.g. on the right hand side)" to mean that the poster was open to other suggestions, but I may have as little idea about the meaning of "e.g." as about the word "modulo"...

Note that we can't comment on what was wrong about your code if you don't show us any! webuse lutkepohl2 line ln* qtr, /// text(`=ln_inv[_N]' `=qtr[_N] + 1' "investment", place(e)) /// text(`=ln_inc[_N]' `=qtr[_N] + 1' "income", place(e)) /// text(`=ln_cons[_N]' `=qtr[_N] + 1' "consumption", place(e)) /// xsc(r(0,108)) /// legend(off) /// ytitle(log of unstated units) Bottom line: use -text()- and -legend(off)-. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss ************* clear* set obs 100 gen x1= rnormal() la var x1 "Arizona" gen x2= rnormal() +20 la var x2 "New Mexico" gen x3=rnormal() -20 la var x3 "Texas" gen time=_n tw (line x1 time) (line x2 time) (line x3 time), /* */ ylabel(`=x1[1]' "`:var la x1'" `=x2[1]' /* */ "`:var la x2'" `=x3[1]' "`:var la x3'", /* */ angle(forty_five)) legend(off) ************* You could automate the production of the -tw- code via a loop, as often advertised on the list... Gisella Young I have a simple line graph with multiple lines on it (one line for each province, showing a single variable over time for each). Having a legend is confusing as the chart will be in B&W and there are a number of lines so, even with different line styles, it is difficult to see which is which. What I want is to have the labels on the chart itself, next to each line (e.g. on the right hand side), i.e. next to each line to have the name of the province which it's for. I've tried and tried but am unable to do this, is it possible??? * * 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/ * * 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/
