Hi Anders,

It seems you would find -metan- is a package you would find helpful, it is
up-to-date compared with metagraph, and will allow co-tabulation of study
data and results:

**************
ssc install metan 
**************

See if needed
**************
help ssc
**************

A new version of metan has just been released, see:
********************
ssc whatsnew
********************

In case metan is already installed, it is important to update it or check
that it is updated: 

****************
ssc install metan, replace
****************


To discover which version of metan is installed type
******************
which metan
******************

You may find more information of possible use via:

************************
net search meta-analysis
************************


A book on the conduct of meta-analyses via Stata is available from Stata
Press.

Note: The graph from metan can be output as a .wmf file, which imports as a
picture into PowerPoint, and so is editable in the Microsoft package in
detail by right clicking to select edit picture, then ungrouping,
deselecting objects, and selecting the objects in turn for editing (some
tabulated data is duplicated -one hidden behind the other, in which case
edit just one and discard the other). By selecting and deleting background
layers a transparent forest plot can be obtained when needed, for
presentations etc.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, this seems to point me in the right direction.
