Dear Statalist,

I'm trying to shorten the y axis of a graph. I understand it is not always straightforward.

Quoting from "Stata tip 23: Regaining control over axis ranges"
"to get a narrower x-axis, we must specify a narrower set of axis labels... for example
   scatter mpg price, xlabel(5000[1000]15000)

I couldn't get it to work, what I'm doing wrong?

webuse rates,clear
tsset date
graph twoway (tsline dow) (lfit dow date), yscale(range(-250 250)) ylabel(-250[100]250, grid)

Patrick Toche.
