You could also build this from scratch as a -twoway line-, I think, using
Scott`s techniques...

Subject: st: Re: xtline: options for line color

I tried the plotline option (suggested by Scott) but I got an error saying
"too many options".  I think because I have 150 ID's, so I would have to
individually overlay 150 plots.  This doesn't seem to be a problem with just
the xtline command with an overlay option, but is with the plot() option.

The individual plot() commands are cumbersome since I have so many groups,
and I think I might have the "too many options" problem I encountered with
the loop.

I have also been digging deeper into the archives and tried to use the
linkplot, but can't find a way to get separate colors for different groups. 
Below please find a subset of my data below for additional reference:

Essentially, I want every id to have it's own line graphed, but the color
should vary based on the group variable (all group 0 are blue, group 1=red,
for example).  The visit is my time variable and vl is my yvariable.  As you
can see, the data is set up in long format, but I also have it in wide.

Any other suggestions on how to do this?
Thanks,
Alison
