Good Morning,

I'm trying to estimate a cdf from a kernel density using a data series
(n=72) I have using the -akdensity- command.  However, I'd like more
data points in the cdf than I have for actual observations and am
having trouble using the n() option for -akdensity- and am hoping
someone can give me some advice on how to create a cdf with a larger

I'm plotting the kernel density along with a normal distribution with
n(500) and would like the same number of data points for the kernel
and cdf, but I get an error message when I try to specify n in the
options for the cdf.

Here is the code I'm using:

akdensity GC, bwidth(.5) normal n(500) generate(gx_chim fgx_chim)
line cdf_g_chim gx_chim

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
