I think you need force() David J Svendsgaard, PhD Biostatistician EPA/ORD/NCEA/RTP, Mail Drop B-243-01 Research Triangle Park, NC 27711 Phone (919) 541-4186 Fax (919) 541-1818 From: Vincent de Jonge <v.dejonge@erasmusmc.nl> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Date: 10/07/2010 10:00 AM Subject: Re: st: RE: x axis forest plot Sent by: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu 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? on 07-10-2010 14:48 Nick Cox said the following: > -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.
