I think the pattern is clear, so you can complete this exercise yourself:

*************
clear*
set obs 9
egen byte a=seq(), to(3) block(3)
gen str1 b=cond(mod(_n,3)==2,"b", /*
*/ cond(mod(_n,3)==0,"c","a"))
gen byte group=1
l, noo sepby(a)

encode b, gen(newb)
tostring a, gen(newa)
gen str2 marker=newa+b

tw (scatter a newb, mlabel(marker)) /*
*/ (pcarrowi .9 .9 .9 1.1 /*
*/  					1.1 .9 1.1 1.1 /*
*/ 						.9 .9 1.1 .9 /*
*/ 						.9 1.1 1.1 1.1, msize(zero))
/*
*/ (pcarrowi 1.9 1.9 1.9 2.1 /*
*/  					2.1 1.9 2.1 2.1 /*
*/ 						1.9 1.9 2.1 1.9 /*
*/ 						1.9 2.1 2.1 2.1,
msize(zero)) /*
*/ (pcarrowi 2.9 2.9 2.9 3.1 /*
*/  					3.1 2.9 3.1 3.1 /*
*/ 						2.9 2.9 3.1 2.9 /*
*/ 						2.9 3.1 3.1 3.1,
msize(zero)), /*
*/ xla(1 2 3) yla(1 2 3) legend(off)

Betreff: st: graphical representation of orthogonal pairings

Hello,
The following code creates a list of orthogonal pairings of two
variables.
My question is whether it's possible with Stata to create a graphical
representation of these pairings, appearing in rows with a box drawn
around each pair:
1a	1b	1c
2a	2b	2c
3a	3b	3c

**********
clear
set obs 3
gen a = _n
gen group=1
list
save a, replace
clear
set obs 3
gen b="a"
replace b="b" in 2
replace b="c" in 3
gen group=1
list
joinby group using a.dta
sort a b
list a b group
