As in:

*************
sysuse auto, clear
graph box price, over(foreign, relabel(1 `""Domestic" "Cars""' 2
`""Foreign"
"Cars""'))
*************

Note the numbers do not map to the numeric codes used for "foreign"
(which
are 0 and 1), but merely count from 1.

Take a look at -help graph_bar-:

"  Relabeling the values does not change the order in which the bars are
displayed.

        You may create multiple-line labels by using quoted strings
within
quoted strings:

            over(varname, relabel(1 `" "Male"   "patients" "'
                                  2 `" "Female" "patients" "'))"

I have a question about how to get text with two rows for the x-axis
label.
If I use

xlabel(1 "Low" 2 "Med" 3 "Hi")

I change the labels to these labels but if I for each label want two
rows of
text, how to do.

If I use the Graph Editor I can get two rows if I edit individual labels
and
choose:

1 "Low" "Risk" 
2 "Med" "Risk" 
3 "Hi" "Risk"

But I would prefer to have it in the graph command instead of using the
Graph Editor.
