Thanks Nick. As you said I added xline() for one time point for Austria: scatter Aus dAustria, xsize(20) ysize(8) c(l l) xline( 17922 ) ||/// scatter Bel dBelgium , c(l l) || /// scatter Aus t10, ms(none) mla(dA2) mlabpos(910) || /// scatter Bel t9 , ms(none) mla(dB2) mlabpos(910) /// yla(9 "Belgium" 10 "Austria" , ang(h)) /// xla(`=mdy(10,5,2008)' `=mdy(1,1,2010)' `=mdy(1,1,2012)', format(%td)) legend(off) and it worked. The only difficulty is that I have to insert manually all these numbers (like 17922) which are the numerical representation of the dates. IS there any quicker way to do that; as I have many countries and for each country I have a different a sequence of dates. One example would be sufficient for me to understand how to move on, thanks again On 6/8/12, Nick Cox <njcoxstata@gmail.com> wrote: > -xaxis()- is an option, not a command, but of no help here.
