Actually, there is another way which may be better (and as it happens is in the dialog box): use the option -ascategory- to treat the y variables as if they were the first (and in this case only) -over()- category. This also makes all the bars look the same and puts gaps between them, avoiding most of the rest of your code. You will still want -nolabel- to label them with variable names instead of labels ("mean of...").

Ah, that works. Thanks a lot. I overlooked it. Doesn't seem to be in the 
-graph bar- menu either. Help file says it is "rarely specified". I'm 
doing something very unusual, it seems.
