Greetings Statalites!

Does anyone know how to change the automatic defaults for meta-analysis graphs so
that I could get a variable that has authors as text instead of the automatic "study 1,2,3,4,.."?
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-.

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 "";

and downloading the Stata 8 version of -eclplot- from there.

I hope this helps.
