Could you show is a little snippet of data and the exact command you typed?

I have searched the statalist and the internet at large for a way to solve this problem but have yet to figure this out! Help needed...

I have a categorical variable, "Fee Paid", which is the fee paid by clients for clinical sessions in bands of £10. To plot the frequency of each category I have downloaded and used Catplot. To break this down according to the time of the session (morning, afternoon, and evening), I have used the 'by' command. This produces three separate bar graphs, one for morning (M), afternoon (A), and evening (E). However, I would like to produce one bar graph with all three session times next to one another for each band of payment, as below:

   |        |
|  |		|  |
|  |  |	|  |  |
|  |  |	|  |  |
M  A  E	M  A  E
£10-£20	£21-£30	and so on...

Is there a way to do this? Preferably with all the 'morning' columns in the same colour, and all the afternoon' columns in the same colour etc. With continuous data I would use the aysvars option, is there an equivalent for catplot?

Many thanks,
