Dear Phil, The first piece of code worked well, the second had a minor issue on the twoway part probably from copy/paste etc-I fixed it no problem On a more careful reading of the code, although the graphs have a similar look to what want, I am wondering if this is not the graph I need. On the x-axis I would like to show the p-value and how the p-value decreases for a given effect/sd (effect/sd remain constant) as we increase the sample size. The idea is to show how interpreting trial results from p-values may be misleading as you may have an uniportant clinical effect which may be statistically significant or nonsignificant depending on the sample size used. If I unerstood correctly the code you supplied indicates how the sample size requirements decrease as the a-level changes? Please advise.

I was wondering if someone could help me generate the following graph: twoway line graph showing on the y-axis: sample size and on the x-axis: p-value. The objective is to show how the p-value decreases (increases) as the sample size increases (decreases) given the same effect size and sd Many thanks, Nick * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
