Is it possible to add a scalar which has been created from the results of a test ( in my case it's a ranksum test) into the note of a graph using some Stata code ?


Yes, you can use Stata's expression evaluator inline.  For example:


    scalar foo = 12
    sc y x, note("The value of foo is: `=foo'")


The other alternative, as Oliver noted, is to place the value into a macro instead. One advantage of this approach is that you can apply a display format to the value, if desired. For example:


    . local foo: display %06.2f 12

    . di "`foo'"
    012.00
