Help to modify forest plot

Hello, I'm new here and I hope someone can help me to solve a problem.

I have created a forest plot for prognostic factor meta-regression.
Here you see the forest plot:

And I used this script:
forest(REM_2, common = FALSE, random = TRUE, fontsize = 9, xlab = "OR male vs. female", col.diamond.random = 'steelblue', prediction = TRUE, col.predict = 'light grey')

In the plot the "TE" an d seTE are displayed. My question: how can I rename these words into "Coeff."" and "SE"?

Regards, Bob

Hi, welcome!

We don't really have enough info to help you out. Could you ask this with a minimal REPRoducible EXample (reprex)? A reprex makes it much easier for others to understand your issue and figure out how to help.

If you've never heard of a reprex before, you might want to start by reading this FAQ:

Thank you for your reaction.

Here the full script used:

# Install packages ----

install.packages(c('meta', 'metasens'))
# Loading packages ----

# Print all results with two significant digits: 
settings.meta(digits= 2)

# Loading dataset ----

my_data <- read_excel("Pilot data-analysis 1.xlsx")

# setting data to numeric ----

my_data$Coeff <- as.numeric(my_data$Coeff)
my_data$CI_LL <- as.numeric(my_data$CI_LL)
my_data$CI_UL <- as.numeric(my_data$CI_UL)
my_data$SE <- as.numeric(my_data$SE)

# Estimating REM ----
REM_2 <- metagen(TE = Coeff, seTE = SE, studlab = Study, data = my_data, sm = 'OR', random = TRUE, backtransf = TRUE)

# Making a forest plot ----
forest(REM_2, common = FALSE, random = TRUE, fontsize = 9, xlab = "OR male vs. female", col.diamond.random = 'steelblue', prediction = TRUE, col.predict = 'light grey')

The dataset is an Excel file and can't be send as attachment. Can I send it to you by email?

i don't accept excel files by email; but besides, it wouldnt help progress your issue.

If you don't have a problem with loading your initial data and preparing it to some point ; you should exclude everything leading up to that point as being unnecessary. a reprex, should be 'minimal'.
You can follow the guide and learn how to provide your data in a forum acceptable way. dput() or datapasta() etc.
This will improve your chances of your receiving support.

also, the guide covers formatting your code as code. I will go ahead and edit your post to reflect that, but it would be best if you did it yourself going forward

I have tried to work with replex. Unfortunately, it failed.
I 've got the following message:
Rendering reprex...
Error: This reprex appears to crash R
Call reprex() again with std_out_err = TRUE to get more info

Can you give me advise to solve this error?
