Here is your code:


*************
sysuse bplong, clear
su bp if sex, mean
loc myfirstmean=r(mean)
su bp if !sex, mean
graph box bp, over(sex) ///
yli(`r(mean)' `myfirstmean') yla(`r(mean)' `myfirstmean')
*************

Something tells me this is my code, not Nick`s. He might have cited it in his http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-06/msg00495.html post?

I've read:

"Additionally, I'd like to add the mean to the boxplot.  Is there a way
to do so?"

***
sysuse bplong, clear
su bp, mean
graph box bp, over(sex) ///
yli(`r(mean)') yla(`r(mean)')

Suppose, instead, I wanted to place a marker (x, for example) representing the mean for males, and a marker representing the mean for females on the boxplot. How could this be accomplished?

As always, thank you for your assistance.
