Hello there,
I am seeking for help as for using graph combine command in a loop.
Here is the intro to the problem.

I have number of death for 168 countries for 3 years.
Variables: country (string 3 digit ISO codes), year(numeric) death(numeric)

I tested my scripts on the first 5 countries and got rid of the rest of data.

Here is the script:

levelsof country, local(b)
                           foreach i of local b{
                           graph drop _all
                           graph hbar Deaths_B_total,
over(year,lab(labsize(small)) gap(200)) title("`i'") name(`i')
                   *gr save  ("`i'")
                    local z "`z' `i'"

Result: It creates the individual graphs one at a time but produces
the following error message in the end:

AFG is not a memory graph

I appreciate if someone can help me figure this out.
