-labmask- is from SJ, as you are asked to explain. -search labmask- for a location. -labmask- can't subvert the rule that value labels are only attached to integers, as you discovered. But value labels are not the point here, if I understand your need correctly. You can go line y z, mla(x) regardless of any defined value labels. On "versus": I was brought up (meaning, taught in secondary or high school science) to say "Y versus X" where Y is the response or the dependent variable. The logic, as I understood it circa 1965 and also now, is that the dependent variable Y is regarded as a function of the other variable X, and so mentioned first, just as Y = f(X) or something similar is a common mathematical convention. But on this point usages do vary. It seems more likely that you want line z y, mla(x) but you will know what you want. You may need to truncate the display of decimal places. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk A. Berâ I have three variables as below. y x z 1 1.0000 -1.0000 2 0.5000 -0.5000 3 0.3333 -0.3333 4 0.2500 -0.2500 5 0.2000 -0.2000 6 0.1667 -0.1667 7 0.1429 -0.1429 8 0.1250 -0.1250 9 0.1111 -0.1111 10 0.1000 -0.1000 I would like to produce a line graph of Y vs Z but I would like Z to have the values of X as value labels. Is this possible? I tried the following but it did not work. Thanks. .labmask z. , values(x) may not label non-integers * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
