one of the commands I used was:

metan a b c d, label(namevar=Author) by(HQ) random rr xlabel(0,1,5) force

with this error:
invalid label specifier, :  0 "1" . "0" 0 "1" 1.6094379124341 "5":

or
metan a b c d, label(namevar=Author) by(HQ) random rr xlabel(0,1,5)
invalid label specifier, :  0 "1" . "0" 0 "1" 1.6094379124341 "5":

is that of any help?

-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. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk

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.
