Well, that is what happens when you suggest an idea without trying it. I am stumped on this, because the documentation says -yscale(alt)- should switch the position of the y axis from right to left (or vice versa), but I cannot find any combination of -yaxis()- and -yscale()- that will solve this. Although this is not a fun suggestion, you could use the graph editor, choosing the -grid edit- mode to move the axis from the left to the right, and then from the right to the left. I bet, however, someone else has a better idea!

No joy there, Michael.

twoway (histogram osteocalcin, width(5) yaxis(1))  ///
         (line hr TOC, yaxis(2))

gives me the same as:

twoway (histogram osteocalcin, width(5) yaxis(2))   ///
        (line hr TOC, yaxis(1))

Maybe this will do the trick?

twoway (histogram osteocalcin, width(5) yaxis(1))  ///
         (line hr TOC, yaxis(2))

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 is
on
the left.

So my question: how can if get my axes where I want them and have the
line over the top of the histogram?

Thanks.
