Subject   st: How do we format data and place the graphic in metan ?

I looking to improve the formatted output in the graphic of 'metan' in v9.

I am having two problems:

1. I would like to move the central graphic right or left without moving the
columns of information/data. If I could do this I would be able to make
better use of the space within the overall graphic, and so more clearly
illustrate the results.

2. I would also like to format the columns of data in the graphic. In
particular to format the  data as  X.Y where X and Y are specified at any
reasonable length about the decimal point (at present I get too many
significant places). Formatting the input data doesn't affect the output in
the graphic (or so it appears).

I feel to have exhausted my exploration of metan on these problems with only
the following seemingly related information, perhaps because the update to
metan is so recent (and helpful!!)
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-02/msg00748.html. 

Possible the answer is quite basic, however I have not yet stumbled on
solutions during my exploration. The code and data showing need of some
formatting in the overall graphic is given below.

What tricks am I missing? I should be grateful for potential solutions.



With thanks
