Seb,
you can achieve what you describe through overlaying two graphs. You
will need a graph of type -scatter- and a graph of type -spike-.
Let's say you dataset contains four variables:
mean_var -> variable holding the mean
lcl_var -> variable holding the lower confidence limit
ucl_var -> variable holding the upper confidence limit
x_var -> some variable over which you want to graph the above
mentioned variables
The apppropiate -graph- command would then be:
twoway ///
|| scatter mean_var x_var, [options] ///
|| rspike lcl_var ucl_var x_var, [options] ///
|| , [overall options,eg, legendoptions]
This could of course also be written down differently,eg, just in line
omitting the "||" and the "///", but I just like the very structured
appearance of the above presented.
regards
Sebastian

Dear Statalisters,
I need to make a graph that looks like a box plot, but shows the mean
and 95 percent CI. Basically I want the graph to have a dot for the
mean and a thin like for the CI, and all that for about 10 variables on
the x-axis. I unsuccessfully tried to get a twoway graph to work using
the code on
http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/library/GraphExamples/code/tworcap.htm
Any suggestions very much appreciated!
Seb
