Thanks, Nick.

I tried a search before but must have missed it. I'll look into the thread.

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.

It seems like it should be a simple command, but I've given up in
frustration and turn here for help.

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.
