The | divider in the table was bothering me so, here it is after playing with it a bit more--this time using the 'caption' option to build the second column of values.  
*************
sysuse auto, clear

forval n = 1/20 {
	loc sidetable `" `sidetable'  " `=make[`n']'  "  "'
	}
	di `"`sidetable'"'
forval n = 1/20 {
	loc sidecap `" `sidecap'  "      $`=price[`n']'"  "'
	}
	di `"`sidetable'"'	
graph bar (mean) headroom price,  ///
  blabel(bar) note("{bf: MAKE    }"  ///
  "-----------------"    `sidetable'  ///
  , size(medsmall) color(green) ///
  position(2) margin(small)  /// 
  justification(left)) ///
  caption(" {bf:   Price }"  ///
  "---------"    `sidecap'  ///
  , size(medsmall) color(midgreen) ///
  position(2) margin(vsmall)  /// 
  justification(right))
*************
