Dear Statalisters:

I have a question very similar to the one raised in:

http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2010-04/msg00867.html

I read the answer and some other threads on dates in graph
(http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2011-10/msg00731.html) and do
not find the answer for my problem.

I want to make a graph with the command:

graph bar Downgrade Upgrade if Crisis2 == 1, over (Year_Quarter)

where Year_Quarter is formatted as  %tq. I have 8 quarters involved in
the graphs (from 2007q1 to 2008q4).

This produces a graph with the number corresponding to the quarter on
the x-axis (from 190 to 197), rather than the actual quarter (e.g.
'190' instead of '2007q1').

How can I get the quarter to show up rather than the corresponding number?

In the above mentioned thread, I read the solution. I do not
understand why with a graph twoway, the label is by default the one I
would like to have. With bar, it does not work by default. (But my
graph cannot be twoway).

I found the following solution:

graph bar Downgrade Upgrade if Crisis2 == 1, over (Year_Quarter,
relabel (1 "2007q1" 2 "2007q2" ... 8 "2008q4")).

It works by it is painful. I was not able to use -mylabels-
downloadable from ssc) to generate automatically the "relabel".

Best regards

Hervé
