Martin, Scott:

Thanks for the suggestions. However, my actual graph is much
more complicated than my example, and can't easily be kludged as
Martin suggests; moreover, I have to generate hundreds of these
for separate (automated) reports, and manual editing is not
a practical solution. Any other ideas?

You could use the graph editor to add a line on top of the bars.

There must be a way to do this, but I can't seem to
make it happen.

I have a simple bar graph:

 clear
 set obs 1
 gen var1=40
 gen var2=60
 graph bar var1 var2, bargap(20)

and I want to add a reference line

 graph bar var1 var2 , bargap(20) yline(30)

The problem is, the added line goes *behind* the bars, and is
mostly invisible. I want -yline- to go on top of the bars, but
no combinatin of -yline- options or styles seems to make this
happen. Any ideas?

thanks,
Jeph
