Hi,

************* begin example ******************* clear * Create some example variable set obs 3 gen str5 parm = "a" replace parm = "b" in 2 replace parm = "c" in 3 list gen qvs = rnormal() * Asuming the data are sorted the way you want them you can just * create an id variable gen int id = _n * Make a label out of you string variable levelsof parm tokenize `"`r(levels)'"' local i = 0 while "`1'" != "" { local i = `i' + 1 dis `i' dis "`1'" label define lbl_parm `i' "`1'", modify macro shift } * attach the label to your id variable label values id lbl_parm list tw scatter qvs id, xlab(, valuelabel) exit ************* end example ******************* Best Oliver Am 13.04.2011 11:12, schrieb Arti Rayit:

I have a dataset which has a str5 variable 'parm' of the form 1-2, 1-3, 1-4 etc and I want to use this as the variable on the x axis of a twoway scatter plot. I have converted this to numeric: encode parm,gen(id) label(parm) twoway (scatter qvs id), xlabel(, valuelabel) but the new variable has the sort order based on parm: parm estimate p qvs sid id | |----------------------------------------------------| 1. | 1-2 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 1 3 | 2. | 1-3 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 2 4 | 3. | 1-4 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 3 5 | 4. | 1-5 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 4 6 | 5. | 1-6 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 5 7 | |----------------------------------------------------| 6. | 1-7 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 6 8 | 7. | 1-8 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 7 9 | 8. | 1-9 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 8 10 | 9. | 1-10 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 9 1 | 10. | 1-11 125.5616 3.83e-29 .0001 10 2 which means the first plotted variable is 1-10 rather than 1-2. How can I sort this so that the plot sequence is 1-2, 1-3 etc. I am using Stata 11.
