*--------------- begin example --------------
sysuse auto, clear

sum mpg
replace mpg = (mpg-r(mean))/r(sd)
sum length
replace length = (length-r(mean))/r(sd)

graph bar (mean) mpg length, over(foreign) ///
 bar(1,color(gs10)) bar(2,color (gs14)) 
*------------- end example -------------------
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see )
