Dear All,
how can I build a Graph with a thick point for a value and two lines (one above and one below) for confidence interval?
I thought that "twoway rcap" is useful for me, but I am not able to put the point in the middle of the range.
In my dataset I have four columns.
1) Gene
2) OR for the correspondin gene (It's a case-control study)
3) Lower bound CI 95%
4) Upper bound CI 95%
So I would like to have a graphs with one vertical line (with a central thich point) that indicates both the OR and the corresponding CI limits for each gene.
Use the -eclplot- package, downloadable from SSC. (Type -ssc install eclplot- to install this.) The command you use should be something like

eclplot or ormin ormax gene

You can, of course, add options (there are many to choose from). Or you can even construct the command using the -eclplot- dialog, which is probably easier for most people.

I hope this helps.
