I'm trying to overlay a line graph and a histogram, so I used this: twoway (line hr TOC, yaxis(1)) /// (histogram osteocalcin, width(5) yaxis(2)) This gives me the y-axis for hr on the left and the y-axis for the histogram on the right which is what I want, but the histogram is over the top of the line. OK, so then I tried: twoway (histogram osteocalcin, width(5) yaxis(2)) /// (line hr TOC, yaxis(1)) Now the line is on top of the histogram (good), but the y-axes have swapped. Now the hr axis is on the right and the histogram axis isonthe left. So my question: how can if get my axes where I want them and have the line over the top of the histogram?
