It is an example, you paste it in a new do-file, like in http://www.maartenbuis.nl/example_faq/index.html#work . The first step is to run that example and see the output. Than you can look at each line separately, understand what it does (use -help- to find out what a command does), and change it to fit your data. -------------------------- Maarten L.
