Thanks, Nick. I tried a search before but must have missed it. I'll look into the thread. Matt Nick Cox wrote:

But a basic misunderstanding here is that with your example syntax the first bar look is associated with the first variable being shown -- not the first bar.

I'd like to make a series simple bar graphs (let's say two graphs), one variable at a time (let's say mpg then cost) over a categorical variable (e.g., carmodel), sorted in descending order for each; however, the catch is I want a specific car model differentiated in both graphs (via one of the barlook_options). graph bar mpg, over(carmodel, sort(1) descending) graph bar cost, over(carmodel, sort(1) descending) As far as I can tell, when I use a barlook_option like bar(#, color()), I have to specify the #th bar, which may not be the same across both graphs. I could go back and manually change each, but this quickly gets tedious with many different models or many different graphs.* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
