I think you have two main options. 1. Draw the graph and change the text labels in the Graph Editor. 2. Start again, using -collapse- or -statsby- to get a reduced dataset and use -twoway bar- etc. I know that is not your example, but starting bars for Fahrenheit temperatures at 0 really does not make much scientific or statistical sense!
