Re: st: changing defaults for metaanalysis graphs

If you produce your meta-analysis graphs using -eclplot- (downloadable from
SSC), then you can use the -sencode- package (also downloadable from SSC)
to input your text study variable and create a labelled numeric study
variable (numbered in an order chosen by the user). This labelled numeric
study variable can then be plotted against the estimates and confidence
limits using -eclplot-.
Does anyone know how to change the automatic defaults for meta-analysis
that I could get a variable that has authors as text instead of the
automatic "study 1,2,3,4,.."?
If you are still using Stata 8 instead of Stata 9, then you can download
the Stata 8 version of -eclplot- from my website by typing in Stata
net from "http://www.kcl-phs.org.uk/rogernewson/stata8/"
and downloading the Stata 8 version of -eclplot- from there.
I hope this helps.
