Dear statalist,

I can't seem to figure this out. I have data from a table that I would
like to plot. The data looks like this:

country		sex	mean	se	x
USA		Male	269.34	(2.29)	1
USA		Female	277.60	(2.17)	1
England		Male	267.80	(2.52)  1
England		Female	266.78	(2.56)  1
Scotland	Male	264.91	(4.69)	1
Scotland	Female	267.65	(3.56)	1
.		.	.	.
.		.	.	.
Scotland	Female  400.65  (4.73)  10


I would like to plot the means for each country-sex cell (with t-shaped
error bars that are +/- 2*se) as lines with x on the x-axis.
I could do this with twoway rcap by defining y1=y+2*se and y2=y-2*se, but
that only plots the error bars without connecting the points. Is
there a way to connect the points or is there a better alternative to
this?

Thank you for your help.

DVM
