I suspect that your xlabels are using whatever format has

been assigned to your variable, which will be shown by

a -describe-. Something like

hist f8dv440, frequency width(1) bfcolor(purple) blcolor(purple)

xla(, format(%2.0f))

should force the display of integers. This is documented

at the help for axis label options.

Good morning everyone,

I am using Stata 8 for Windows.

I have been trying to create a histogram using:

hist f8dv440, frequency width(1) bfcolor(purple) blcolor(purple)

which creates a lovely plot except for a strange interpretation of the

values on the x-axis. Rather than displaying the numbers 1 through 22 (the scale of my variable) it displays them as, for example,

5.00000000000000*e^0 so the x-axis is just a jumble of numbers.

There are lots of options for labelling the points themselves but I can't find anything to change the display of the x-axis. There seem to be some option for this if using -twoway- but not for an individual plot. The variable itself is numeric with a width of three and no decimal places.

Any ideas how to change this?
