-metan- is a user-written command (SSC). 

It usually helps and never hurts if you show exact code that you tried. 

In general with a graphics command you can not omit data points from a graph by truncating the axis scale. You must omit data explicitly e.g. by using -if-. 

-xaxis()- and -xlabel()- are options, not commands.

I did a meta-analysis on count data using the db 
metan command and plotted a forest plot. However, to improve readability 
I would like to limit the x axis. This just won't work. I don't know how 
to do it. Tried commands like xaxis, xlabel, etc. but always get an 
error. Hope someone can get me the answer.
