Thanks Scott and Phil, they're both really neat solutions and both work very nicely - I've got a great-looking graph now.

Thanks again,

Alex.

You could edit out the -scatter- command (line numbers 113 to 122), change the program define statement  and save the file as fracplot2.ado

What I would like to do is suppress them entirely and so allow the axes to shorten to just include the fractional polynomial curve - giving a similar appearance to the twoway graph fpfitci.
