Hi Nick, You said "cusum6 is an old program" that's why I ask if there is a new one. As I said, I am working on time series data and want to label my X axis so I could identify (with th cusum6 command) break point; but, I can't edit myself. I would like to know if there is a command telling stata to put all my time-periods (quarter) on the X axis. Thanks PS: I am using stata 12 with update from March20th, 2013. ---------------------------------------- > Date: Tue, 25 Jun 2013 22:15:34 +0100 > Subject: Re: st: gra command > From: njcoxstata@gmail.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > I fail to see how this question follows from my post, but > > 1.

I changed "gra" to "graph" and I got "gpopgraph_g.new petindex, s([year]) xlab ylab: class member function not found" message. To say it frankly, it's my first time using stata and I have stata12; therefore it's hard for me to know what has changed and from where.
