I don't understand your comment about opacity. Overlapping histograms
demand a high degree of transparency, not opacity. Setting
-bfcolor(none)- gets you most of the way there. 

The code below works (again) for me. 

Very experienced Stata users don't stop making lots of mistakes. They
just get faster at correcting them. Or so I'm told.

It's too bad opacity is not a graphics option here.

BTW, and not to hijack or interweave threads, but your example is  
another example of not being able to copy and paste code and have it  
work. I can't imagine you missed anything like a comma or some such...
