Please remember you have to be more specific, as stated in the Statalist's FAQ. Nick's suggestion works fine for me. But anyway, wouldn't it be better to -reshape long- your data, -collapse- it and then produce the graph? reshape long pl_1 pl_2 pl_3 pl_4 pl_5 pg_1 pg_2 pg_3 pg_4 pg_5, i(id) j(j) collapse pl_ pg_, by(j) twoway (line pl_ j) (line pg_ j) Note that both commands change completely your data, so you may want to save your data before using them. Hope this helps. Carlos 2014-02-25 13:55 GMT-05:00 Han-Jung Ko (Koko) <kohan@onid.oregonstate.edu>: > Thank you. I am not certain. The profileplot command seems requiring > by() specification.
