The approach previously described using markerlabels can be used for this. Here is an example The resulting plot shows text on the left (in variable "prep_label") and text, in this case risk ratios plus 95% CI, on the right of the forest plot (in variable "result"). variables "resultpos" and "prep_label_pos" determine where the text is positioned on the x-axis. The xscale option "noline" prevents Stata from drawing the x-axis. Why, because the x-axis will not only be drawn from 0.1 to 10 (see xlabel) but from 0.01 to 100 (see xscale). I usually import the graph in Powerpoint, de-group it and connect the outer ticks, group it again and save it again as emf-file. That's the only manipulation necessary. If you don't care about the x-axis line just delete the "noline" option.

I know that the previous advice about merging a graph with a table inside a Word document (for example) will apply, just wondering if there is a more direct way as I may have to revise this figure many many times. thanks, Jeph On 8/23/2010 9:44 PM, Jeph Herrin wrote: > I would like to incorporate a very simply (4x2) table into a figure.
