I have a quick and hopefully not too complicated question.  I am trying to create a scatterplot showing the relationship between two variables, one ordinal and one continuous.   A regression indicates a quadratic relationship, but when I use the twoway scatter syntax, I get data points lined up along the categories of the ordinal variable.  Can someone advise me on the syntax to show the regression line?

Thanks in advance for your help.
