You're welcome, and I did get the email. You can always check the archives
online to see if your email got through.

One trick is to superimpose a second invisible but otherwise identical
line on top of the first and then specify a second axis. In this example I
also set the legend to just show the first visible line.

. twoway (tsline le) (tsline le, yaxis(2) lcolor(none) legend(order(1)))
