<> You are -recast-ing to the -twoway- graph "bar", not the standalone -graph bar-. If you drilled your way to the very bottom (think http://www.stata.com/meeting/dcconf09/dc09_radyakin.pdf), you would find that these two derive from the same substance, but the major demarcation line for the end user still runs between the -twoway- graphs and the "rest of world". Those hyphens in your command need to be stripped off in any event, and the double comma does have a special meaning which Nick elucidated in a post some time in the past, but you may want to stick to one per Stata command :-) HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Michael McCulloch Sent: Sonntag, 29.
