# Re: st: Combining seperate graphs into one

```Hello Sebastian,

Is your final goal to have two lines on the same common x and y axis? If so, you don't need any combining commands, you can just string them together in one graph, either in parenthesis or separated by two vertical pipes "||". For example, if you wanted the leverage ratio over years for low and high groups ( and you have indicators for each category):

twoway line lev year if competitive == 1 ||  line lev year if concentrated == 1

etc. etc.
