It is not clear how your dataset is actually set up. But assume you get it to a form with three variables, time, perce, and sig, with sig coded as 1 for "significant" and 0 for not significant. Then you could do something like:

graph twoway (scatter perc time if sig==0, msym(oh))
(scatter perc time if sig==1, msym(O))
, legend(order(1 "Not Significant" 2 "Significant")) yline(0)

Even more informative would be to plot the confidence interval for each as a vertical range plot, and let users judge for themselves...

```Hi all,

Say I have a table which looks like this the *** shows the values which are
significant. Of course I can plot the percentages against time. Is there
someway to highlight the significant values in the graph...Say for example
by changing the size of the symbols only for the significant values.

Time    percentage
