Hi Colin

local n=10

forvalues graph =1/`n' {
	local command "`command' (line  freq`graph' sample`graph' , sort)"
	}
twoway `command'		


meet your needs?

Dear list,

I am writing a do file to take n random samplings from a distribution,
for a user-inputted value of n.
This file creates variables labelled sample`i' and freq`i' for each
value of i between 1 and n.
I would like to draw a single line graph with all of the plots of
sample`i' against freq`i' overlaid on it.
So something like:
twoway (line freq1 sample1, sort) (line freq2 sample2, sort)...(line
freqn samplen, sort)
But I can't see how to write this without knowing the value of n
beforehand, and then, if n is large, writing an incredibly long command.
Is there a way to do this within Stata?

Regards,

Colin
