 Hi to all.
 
I am trying to create a twoway line graph of var1 vs year.

I had copied & pasted the dataset from excel and the year was pasted as string.
 
I used:

encode year,gen(yearno)

and year is converted into a number from 1-17
 
I would like to : 

twoway (line var1 yearno)
 
but on the x-axis show the actual label of the year like 1995, 2000, 2001 etc, instead of values from 1-17.
 
Many thanks,
 
Nick
