Maarten,

That worked just great - thanks a lot - have had some fun formatting legends and titles in the process since I don't usually use Stata to graph things.

Best wishes

Tim

Only the regression command changes hence why I have the graphing function in a separate do file.

.do files accept arguments, so if you call your graphing .do file
graph.do, you can write in you master.do file

do model1.do
do graph.do "model 1"

do model2.do
do graph.do  "model 2"

while graph.do is running the local macro `1' (for the first argument
passed to the .do file) will contain "model 1" in the first call and
and "model 2" in the second call. So when your graphing command
contains the option -title(`1')- you will get the correct titles for
each graph.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
