There are probably better ways to do this, but one approach would be tempvar obs gen `obs' = _n qui levelsof id, loc(ids) foreach id of loc ids { qui sum `obs' if id==`id' line o time if id==`id', t1title(`id') note(`"`=note[`r(min)']'"') /// name(p`id', replace) loc plots "`plots' p`id'" } gr combine `plots', ycommon xcommon note("Graphs by id") As you can see, this assumes that the var id is numeric and that the value of note (i.e., your 4th variable) is constant within unique values of id. Note that the graph this generates will not look *exactly* like that you get with the -by()- option, but you can make it so with a few additional graph options if you'd like. -- Phil * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
