I've not made graphs with recent versions of Stata so this solution is a guess but it looks like the only ampersand you have in your code is in the note that mentions the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation. Try changing that to "and". I'm not sure why the & in the note would be a problem but that's the only candidate I see in your command. -Sarah -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Ting Zhang Sent: Thursday, May 13, 2010 1:57 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: r(198) frustration--need help Hi, I entered this generating graph command, but STATA 11 told me invalid '&' r(198); My command is graph bar eExpansion_perc eContraction_perc eBirth_perc eDeath_perc if Naics34==237 | Naics34==2361 | Naics34==2381 | Naics34==2382 | Naics34==2383, over(Quarter,label(angle(45) labsize(small)) relabel(1 "2004q2" 2 "2004q3" 3 "2004q4" 4 "2005q1" 5 "2005q2" 6 "2005q3" 7 "2005q4" 8 "2006q1" 9 "2006q2" 10 "2006q3" 11 "2006q4" 12 "2007q1" 13 "2007q2" 14 "2007q3" 15 "2007q4" 16 "2008q1" 17 "2008q2" 18 "2008q3" 19 "2008q4" 20 "2009q1" 21 "2009q2")) by(Naics34, iscale(.5) title("Maryland Quarterly Employment Change Types in Proportions for Selected Industry Subsectors""in Construction (23), 2004q1-2009q2", size(small)) note("The Jacob France Institute" "Data received from the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation", justification(right) position(5) alignment(baseline) size(vsmall)) ) stack bar(1, fcolor(navy) lcolor(navy)) bar(2, fcolor(maroon) lcolor(maroon)) bar(3, fcolor(ltblue) lcolor(ltblue)) bar(4, fcolor(orange) lcolor(orange)) ytitle("Employment Change as a Percentage of Total (%)", size(small)) ylabel(, valuelabel labsize(small)) legend(order(1 "Gains from Expansions" 2 "Losses from Contractions" 3 "Gains for Births" 4 "Losses for Deaths" ) size(vsmall) ) Then I used the windows graph assist program, stata system entered this following command after I filling every necessary box: graph bar (asis) eExpansion_perc eContraction_perc eBirth_perc eDeath_perc if Naics34==237 | Naics34==2361 | Naics34==2381 | Naics34==2382 | Naics34==2383, over(Quarter, relabel(1 "2004q2" 2 "2004q3" 3 "2004q4" 4 "2005q1" 5 "2005q2" 6 "2005q3" 7 "2005q4" 8 "2006q1" 9 "2006q2" 10 "2006q3" 11 "2006q4" 12 "2007q1" 13 "2007q2" 14 "2007q3" 15 "2007q4" 16 "2008q1" 17 "2008q2" 18 "2008q3" 19 "2008q4" 20 "2009q1" 21 "2009q2") label(angle(forty_five) labsize(small))) stack bar(1, fcolor(navy) lcolor(navy)) bar(2, fcolor(maroon) lcolor(maroon)) bar(3, fcolor(ltblue) lcolor(ltblue)) bar(4, fcolor(orange) lcolor(orange)) ytitle("Employment Change as a Percentage of Total (%)") ytitle(, size(small)) ylabel(, labels labsize(small) valuelabel) by(, title("Maryland Quarterly Employment Change Types in Proportions for Selected Industry Subsectors""in Construction (23), 2004q1-2009q2", size(small)) note("The Jacob France Institute" "Data received from the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation", size(vsmall) position(5))) by(, legend(on)) legend(order(1 "Gains from Expansions" 2 "Losses from Contractions" 3 "Gains for Births" 4 "Losses for Deaths") size(vsmall)) by(Naics34) however. stata 11 again returned: invalid '&' r(198); Now I am frustrated.
