Dear Scott Merryman: 

thanks for your help but I got the message "mlabel not
allowed" as usual. I tried it with the "auto" data and
my data set of interest. I checked out the marker
options in help and I couldn't find the sub-option for
labels or anything suggesting I could label variable
values on the box plot. It seems I should be able to
id observations on the box plot though... any other
suggestions? Thanks again. 

Marcos
