I have just found out that the tabodds command may meet what I wanted - linear trend of ORs,
however making multivariate adjustments is not easy (I tried and it gave no results after adjusting
for >2 or 3 variables.) Is there any "immediate command" by just inputing the OR (and CI, if needed)
and the independent variable category and produces a p value?
