Thanks, Sergiy!
Thanks a lot -  my knowledge of stata is yet to be improved..
Have several questions: 
1) I did not manage to stack the variables one after each other, but summed them up (together they are 1) and have put in the right order so now it looks like true.. what is the option for stacking? -well, if not, you can ignore that, as I managed to do it anyhow.. what matters that it worked
2) can you refer me to how to force stata to recycle the colors with a period? I could not figure out... 1 2 3 from below give the "big" colors, but how do I force the "small" colors?
3) sc t1 zero gives me a line of dots on the 0 line in the middle from t1 which represents the periods - how do I "hide" this?
4) how (and also - where) do I put the option for every 4th gorizontal year to be thicker (cutoff for the year)?








twoway bar bigVCPv1 bigLCPv1 bigPCPv t1, horizontal || /*
*/bar smallVCPv1 smallLCPv1 smallPCPv t1, horizontal, ||/*
*/sc t1 zero,/*
*/xtitle( "Currency pricing per groups of companies" )  ytitle("")/*
*/legend(label(1 VCP) label(2 LCP) label(3 PCP)) legend(order(1 2 3))/*
*/ysca(noline) ylabel(none) xsca(noline titlegap(-0.1))/*
*/xlabel(-1 "1"-0.75 "75%" -0.5 "50%" -0.25 "25%" 0 "0" 0.25 "25%" 0.5 "50%" 0.75 "75%" 0(1)1 , tlength(0) grid gmin gmax)








Thanks again ahead,
Maria
