I don't have access to the article Maarten referenced.
the first answer (as I gave you a link). This article will give you all
the elements you need to solve your problem. Here is an example:
* begin example 
sysuse auto, clear
parmby "mean trunk mpg turn", by(foreign) norestore
gen x = _n
scatter estimate x  /*
*/ rcap min95 max95 x, /*
*/ xlab(1 "trunk" /*
*/ 2 `""mpg" "Domestic""' /*
*/ 3 "turn" /*
*/ 4 "trunk" /*
*/ 5 `""mpg" "Foreign""' /*
*/ 6 "turn") /*
*/ legend(order(1 "mean" 2 "95% CI")) /*
*/ xtitle("")
* end example 
(For more on how to use examples I sent to the Statalist, see

Hope this helps,
