Reg sees a roadblock, then a brick wall. I see no failed code that I can possibly comment on. I see no precise details on variables. If method is a variable, -graph box <whatever>, over(method)- is a recipe. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss As Nick says, everything rides on the question whether you want the graphs in one panel, or whether they might be -graph combine-d later - in which case Nick`s suggestion of -if-s and -over-s is back in business... Reg Jordan I have measurement values at specified locations over the years 2000 - 2009. These measurement values were generated using three different analytical methods. Method 800: 2000 - 2004; Method 802: 2005 - 2007; Method 811: 2000 - 2009. I have been trying to examine the data for different methods during the time periods in which the methods were used. I have tried various combinations of -if-s and -over-s without success. Hence the SOS. To answer your question: brick wall. Nick Cox What roadblock did you meet? Some combination of -if- and -over()- would seem sufficient for either problem. Reg Jordan Thanks so much, Martin. Your suggestion did the trick. Much appreciated. Martin Weiss One idea would be to separate beforehand: ************* sysuse nlswork,clear separate hours, by(inrange(year, 70,72)) gen(firstsepa) separate hours, by(inlist(year, 70,73,76)) gen(secondsepa) label variable firstsepa1 `"Variable for Hours in Years 1970-1972"' label variable secondsepa1`"Variable for Hours in Years 1970, 1973, 1976"' graph box firstsepa1 secondsepa1, legend(rows(2)) ************* Reg Jordan I have data collected during the years 2000 -2009. I want to boxplot one of the data variables, but I've hit a roadblock attempting to plot only that variable for certain years. How would I boxplot data for: (1) years 2000 - 2003, and (2) for years, say, 2000, 2003, and 2007?
