Your strategy won't work. -graph bar- and -twoway- are not compatible. You need to switch to -twoway- to get this. Here is a silly example, but some possibly useful technique. webuse grunfeld, clear keep if company == 1 keep if year < 1945 graph bar (asis) invest mvalue kstock , over(year) gen year2 = year + 0.3 gen year3 = year - 0.3 twoway bar invest year3, barw(0.3) || bar mvalue year, barw(0.3) || bar kstock year2 , barw(0.3) gen average = (invest + mvalue + kstock) / 3 twoway bar invest year3, barw(0.3) || bar mvalue year, barw(0.3) || bar kstock year2 , barw(0.3) || line average year On offsets, see SJ-7-1 gr0026 . . . .
