Maarten and Martin, or vice versa, have solved this, but one key point
remains worth emphasis. 

I think Ronnie meant that it was AS IF his colleague had overlaid the
results of -twoway connected- with the results of -graph bar-. 

However, you can't do that in Stata. As the Ms' examples showed, you
need to do it all within -twoway-. 

A repeated strategic point is that if you run into a dead wall in -graph
bar- or -graph dot- or -graph box-, you often need to redo the graphing
within -twoway-. 

The next Stata Journal for example carries a detailed discussion of how
to do box plots entirely within -twoway-.

I am trying, without much luck, to re-create a chart a colleague has
produced in MS Excel. The data are

     quintile     total       afi   rfi
            1   1096.83    717.27   .44
            2    4045.8   1430.88   .35
            3   5741.28    1747.3    .3
            4   9429.86   2414.48   .27
            5   19040.5   4688.59   .27

What they have done is overlay

-twoway connected rfi quintile- onto -gr bar tot afi, over(quintile)- to
get this

How can I do this in Stata?
