Only the regression command changes hence why I have the graphing function in a separate do file.

.do files accept arguments, so if you call your graphing .do file, you can write in you file

do "model 1"

do  "model 2"

while is running the local macro `1' (for the first argument
passed to the .do file) will contain "model 1" in the first call and
and "model 2" in the second call. So when your graphing command
contains the option -title(`1')- you will get the correct titles for
each graph.

Hope this helps,
