<> Jeph: Here are two examples to get you started, though, it might be easier to just place an exported .gph or .eps version of the figure above the formatted table in a Word document and use an image capture software or export the page as an image/pdf. You can tweak the positioning of the text under a figure or written to a file, but it will take some patience. The code below requires you to install the rtfutil suite of adofiles from Roger Newson (findit rtfutil) **************! *! watch for wrapping issues in the code below !* //setup// clear all sysuse cancer recode _t (30/max = 30) stset studytime, fail(died) streg, distribution(exponential) predict S, surv //example 1: text() option// sts graph, plot(line S _t, sort) legend(pos(4) ring(0) rows(2)) /// graphregion(margin(vlarge) fcolor(white)) /// xscale(range(-1 30)) aspectratio(.5, place(12)) text(-.2 -3 /// "No. at risk" /// " Usual Care 1172 6811 1119 1213 1212" /// " Exercise Train 1444 4242 1233 1231 1213" /// , place(se) just(left) margin(l+1 t+1 b+1) width(85)) name(test, replace) graph save test "graph", replace graph export graph.eps, as(eps) replace //exmaple 2: rtfutil / file write// sts graph, plot(line S _t, sort) legend(pos(4) ring(0) rows(2)) /// graphregion(margin(vsmall) fcolor(white)) name(test2, replace) graph save test2 "graph2", replace graph export graph2.eps, as(eps) replace cap rtfclose handle1 tempname handle1 rtfopen `handle1' using "mydoc1.rtf", template(fnmono1) replace file write `handle1' "{\pard\b JAMA Graph\par}" _n rtflink `handle1' using "graph2.eps" file write `handle1' "{\line}" _n(2) file write `handle1' "{No. at risk }" _n file write `handle1' "{\line}" _n file write `handle1' "{ Usual Care 1172 6811 1119 1213 1212}" _n file write `handle1' "{ Exercise Train 1444 4242 1233 1231 1213}" _n rtfclose `handle1' **note: this lines up for me using MS Word 2008 on Mac, but may not line up on other configurations** **************! ~ Eric On Aug 23, 2010, at 8:44 PM, Jeph Herrin wrote: > I would like to incorporate a very simply (4x2) table into > a figure.
