No problem!  (I prefer that to the "s" that many want to add to my name...)

Hi,

I have the following dataset:

X    year
142.3704    1997
140.2368    1998
165.6991    1999
225.0937    2000
243.2682    2001
295.1701    2002
412.7598    2003
560.8112    2004
660.2197    2005
791.7939    2006
956.2615    2007

If I type the following :
scatter X year, c(l)
I get a graph with the x-scale ranging from 1995 to 2010,
while my
data only extend from 1997 to 2007. Adding :

xscale(range(1997 2007))
or
xscale(r(1997 2007) noextend)

does not modify the outcome.

Any help much appreciated, thanks in advance

joachim
