The thread you cite from 2003 concerns graphs from -graph hbar-. In
that case the graphs are rather different from yours given Stata's use
of categorical axes.

As you have results from -line-, meaning -twoway line-, I would expect
-graph combine- to give good results but it may require use of the
-xcommon- option.

In any case you don't give here _any_ exact syntax  that would allow
detailed comment on what you did. You already should have read this
advice at

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#stata

"Say exactly what you typed and exactly what Stata typed (or did) in
response. N.B. exactly! If you can, reproduce the error with one of
Stata's provided datasets or a simple concocted dataset that you
include in your posting."

Please follow it.
