You don't say why you feel confused or uncertain. Your existing syntax is along the right lines. You can just elaborate it with more -scatter- calls, each specifying the subset you want using -if- and how you want it shown. The syntax gets more detailed but not different in principle. When a graph command gets complicated, I tend to copy it to the do-file editor and space it out so that I can see the structure. If it looks worth keeping, keep it as a do-file. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Webicky I am looking to add several classification points to a scatter graph. The idea is to keep ONE graph. scatter testscore age if test_group==2, msymbol(Oh) || scatter testscore age if test_group==1, msymbol(Th) is my first step. This works fine. The question I have struggled with is how to change only some points that are displayed in the scatter graph but keep the entire graph. I want to use variable expgroup(1=yes 0==no) to change markers where expgroup== 1 & test_group==2 to msymbol(O) and where expgroup== 1 & test_group==1 to msymbol(T), but keep them in the same graph. So - I'd have the same graph above except some points would be hollow others filled. I'd like to add one more step of complexity and change the size of the markers based on more variable - again keeping it in the same scatter. for example variable entrypoint(1=ontime, 0=late). test_group==2 & entrypoint ==1 / test_group==1 & entrypoint ==1. * * 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/
