Hi everyone,

I've got a panel dataset, where I want show the developement of two different groups in the course of time which worked fine by the following command:

graph bar (count) special general, over (date) stack percentage

Unfortunately, since there are more than 30 years of monthly data, the x-axis is filled with dates that it can't be read anymore. Is there a way that the graph shows only years, preferably in 5 year steps?
I know that this is a time series graph so there should be in fact also a command like tsrline to avoid my problem. However I couldn't find anything that creates a graph like the above mentioned (stacked percentage of both groups in each month). I also checked "A visual guide to stata graphics" by Michael Mitchell but I couldn't find anything about a similar graph.

Thanks in advance, everyone!
