```Maarten,

Thank you very much, your suggestions works very well.

```How do I plot a graph polynomial to show there is or no
local inflection point?

I am running:

regress y  x  xsquared  xcubic

Is there a command after the regression to get STATA plot a
graph?
```
```
Just for fun I also added a 95% confidence interval (lb/ub):

*--------------- begin example ----------------------
sysuse nlsw88, clear
gen ttl_exp2 = ttl_exp^2
gen ttl_exp3 = ttl_exp^3
reg wage ttl_exp*

predict yhat, xb
predict se, stdp
gen lb = yhat - invttail(e(df_r),0.025)*se
gen ub = yhat + invttail(e(df_r),0.025)*se
twoway rarea lb ub ttl_exp, sort astyle(ci) || ///
```
line yhat ttl_exp, sort *--------------- end example ------------------------
```( For more on how to use examples I sent to statalist see:
http://www.maartenbuis.nl/stata/exampleFAQ.html )

Hope this helps,
Maarten
