Hi to all,

I am trying the following command in Stata 12.1 with the objective to sort the boxplots according to the value of the median (ascending or descending it does not matter): 

 
.graph box percent,over(journalno, sort(percent) descending )
 
However, it does not work. Any advice would be appreciated.
 
If I use: 

 
graph bar percent,over(journalno,  sort(percent) descending )

 
it works and sorts by the value of the mean

 
Thank you,
 
Nick
